  19. If there is a problem parking then they may have double yellow lines on the road....trouble is ...will the police turn a blind eye like they do near owler lane traffic lights on firvale where vans and cars are parked all over the sides of the roads and on the pavements every time i go past ..............as i go past very very slowly in the traffic jam i might add !!!!
