Introduction

The Proposal for double yellow lines on either side of Malpas High Street Today is the day! that the problems caused by the absence of double yellow lines in Malpas High Street shall be resolved and put to bed. The pain, many of you must witness and observe through your windows on a daily basis due to the High Street having no yellow lines must be the defining reason for the term 'window pain'. Now there will be representatives from the opposing committee by the truckload over the forthcoming weeks accusing us of wanting a 'ridiculous' idea. They will say we are delirious, deranged and demented. But we must remind these people of the daily problems caused in Malpas High Street due to the absence of double yellow lines. ...read more.

Conclusion

Whilst you are buying your white sliced loaf, there is a lorry with 100 white sliced loaves waiting to be delivered. Meanwhile there is a car park which is deserted and high-street infested with cars. So let the double yellow lines provide the answer to this problem. I don't pretend for a moment that the implementation of double yellow lines on the Malpas High Street will solve all the traffic problems in the village. However, there are those who are blind to the present situation and to the problems it is causing. Let's be clear about this, this is not change for change sake. The double yellow lines will provide a more free flowing traffic system, a safer traffic system and one which would surely strenghthen our community. Heaven knows, we're not there with this proposal yet. But this is real life and we should never lose our determination to improve. ...read more.
