'Outer' city centre parking a scourge

Car parking has become a problem within Belfast city centre. This is due, largely, to high price rises.

My main concern, however, is that people are now parking in the areas on the outer parts of the city centre.

These areas are now becoming a hazard, not only to other drivers or pedestrians, but to local people and especially children who live in these areas.

For instance, I myself have had several near-misses around the lower Shankill/Hopewell Avenue area.

People parking and walking to the city centre leave their vehicles on pathways, or on corners and junctions.

This problem has been reported to the local council on several occasions, but seems to be getting worse.

These hazards are an accident waiting to happen. Please help prevent this happening.
