A LORRY failed to stop after it collided with a car in Kendal.

A red Ford B-Max was pulling off the curb outside Martin’s Newsagents, on Highgate, when it was clipped by a trailer being drawn by the lorry.

The dropside lorry had ‘Lakeland’ written on it in blue and was said to have something yellow in it.

Police are appealing for any witnesses of the collision that happened at about 8.20am on Thursday March 6.

Anyone with information is asked to call Cumrbia Police on non-emergency 101 and ask for PC Phelps in Kendal or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Don't you know djw1964? The yellow lines in Kendal are only for visitors.
You park on a yellow line, you take your chance as far as I'm concerned. Shouldn't the car driver be prosecuted for causing an obstruction?

I wouldn't dream of a) parking on the kerb, or b) pulling out if a lorry was passing .... and if I did I certainly wouldn't have the cheek to report it. This is Kendal though so the driver will probably get away with it, and the lorry driver will probably be prosecuted if he's found, even though it's quite likely that he wasn't even aware of clipping the car.

Too many people park on double yellow lines and on the pavement in Kendal and there is never any police around to prosecute them. This driver got all he deserved.

The same thing happens in Kirkby Lonsdale I think there is a new law
that says you can park on double yellow lines and you cant park where
there are no yellow lines also you sometimes have to walk out into the road
because of cars parked on the footpath especially around the SPAR area
and the Orange Tree pub

As long as you put your hazard lights on or have a disabled badge you can park where you like can't you?
I thought that was the law. That, and driving around the Lake District with headlights on full beam, down the middle of the country roads!!



Sarcasm, obviously.
