I’ll wager some parking wardens have not been happy bunnies these last few weeks as double yellow lines, road markings and even zebra crossings weren’t repainted after resurfacing work in Seaside, Seaside Road, Trinity Trees and the seafront. It meant they couldn’t issue penalty charge notices. Chuckling aside however, the result was a dangerous free-for-all with people parking willy nilly and on dangerous corners for days on end. Traffic cones laid out and signs warning motorists not to park there, so lines and markings could be reinstated, were tossed aside. The parking shenanigans finally came to an end this week and the majority of markings redone. So, it’s back to looking out for the wardens lurking on street corners. As they will no doubt be looking to make up the recent shortfall in the cash cow that is Eastbourne’s parking scheme.
