Police warning over illegal parking near car boot sale site

Police are reminding motorists visiting a popular car boot sale that they will crack down on illegal parking.
Last summer illegal parking at the Chirk car boot sale on Sunday mornings resulted in 12 motorists being issued with tickets.
Following recent boot sales at the site there are concerns that the problem may return this summer, so police are putting out an early warning that enforcement action will be taken against offending motorists who ignore warnings from the police and council officials.
Local Inspector Nick Evans of North Wales Police said: “A lot of drivers display a total disregard and ignorance for other road users. 
"When they abandon their cars on pavements or grass verges they not only obstruct the free flow of traffic on a very busy road, but more worryingly they cause a hazard obstructing a clear view for other motorists and obstruct pedestrian’s right of way which could lead to a collision and injury."
