ST HELENA POLICE PARKING ENFORCEMENT CAMPAIGN

St Helena Police will soon be rolling out their Parking Enforcement Campaign, with the aim to alleviate the issue of illegal parking in the Jamestown area.

Police Officers have identified that the main areas of concern, with regards to illegal parking in Jamestown, are as follows:

Market Street

Drivers are parking their vehicles on broken and double yellow lines opposite the Duke of Edinburgh playground

This practice causes a pinch point and disrupts the free flow of traffic with downward traffic having to be at a standstill for long periods of time.

Market Square

Drivers are parking their vehicles on the main road alongside of legally parked vehicles in front of 'The Bazaar' shop

Drivers also park and leave their vehicles around the 'Clock' outside of the 'White Horse' bar as well as in front of The Market

Merchants are loading/unloading goods on the main road

Drivers park and leave their vehicles on the broken yellow line in front of Greenlands

These practices cause obstruction and congestion and are a potential danger to other road users.

Main Street

Drivers stop their vehicles on 'The Roundabout'

Drivers park their vehicles on the double yellow lines outside of 'The Star' shop

Drivers park their vehicles near the Solomon's main office building

Drivers park their vehicles on the main road near Porteous House and goods are also loaded/unloaded in this area

Drivers do not adhere to the two-hour parking. Vehicles are sometimes parked here for the duration of the working day. This does not allow people to park short-term if they wish to do so.

Napoleon Street

Drivers park their vehicles on the pavement as well as on the broken and double yellow lines

Drivers do not adhere to the two-hour parking. Vehicles are sometimes parked here for the duration of the working day. This does not allow people to park short-term if they wish to do so.

St Helena Police advises all drivers to park legally and comply with any restrictions, while ensuring no illegal obstructions are caused.

Once the Parking Enforcement Campaign begins, drivers who park illegally, cause an unlawful obstruction, or do not comply with any parking restrictions, will be approached and could be dealt with by means of prosecution.
