Loads of yellow tickets on cars on Cargo Fleet Road as I drove away from the Riverside yesterday .

There is money to be made by the MBC if they thought about it. The road to the Lord Byron is wide enough to have parking on one side, pay and display would bring in some coffers.

It’s not going to be a popular post, but there’s no need to get a ticket. Plenty of room in the Zetland and only 15 mins walk to the ground. Doesn’t take more than 10 mins to get back to the A66 after the game either. (Apart from Spurs when it took 25 mins!)

The council issued warnings this week - what we did was make sure that there was an up to date car parking map and guide on both the council and official Boro website ahead of the Spurs cup game.
Now people can clearly access a map showing parking for Saturday and evening games.
I will stick a permanent link on this site also in the articles and sticky thread sections.

Sorry I just don't understand why people park so inconsiderately. People need to understand that they won't avoid a ticket by parking on a grass verge beyond the pavement and beyond the double-yellow lines.

There's plenty of parking, some of it free, in the town centre around the University buildings and Gazette office.

Park there and walk in, it's good for you.

While I agree with you, the Council are being inconsistent in deliberately targeting people on match days because the cars are parked in a small area and are not appearing to do so on other occasions/locations. If you look at main roads like Ormesby Bank and Acklam Rd there are always cars parked fully on the pavement and obstructing the pavement but I've never heard of any of them being ticketed. Near where I live someone regularly used to park on the grass inside of the zig zags at a pedestrian crossing. Neither the council or the police were interested. I honestly don't believe this is a safety exercise but is easy money for the council.

I can't have sympathy for those getting parking tickets along CFR.

The surface of the road is pretty rough, but you have no choice but to walk on it if the pavement is full of cars.
This season, I've helped patch up one chap with a nasty head wound from tripping along there, and seen people I know to be medical professionals tending to 2 more.

It is not the case than parking there doesn't harm anyone. Maybe it makes money for the council; I don't really care. People determined to park their SUVs as close to the ground as possible is causing injury to those walking to the match. Whatever their motives, it is more important the council target it on match days as there are many times the number of people trying to walk down there.

I dont even think its a parking issue as such, its more of an issue about these plonkers expecting to rock up somewhere within 1/2 a mile of the stadium 15 minutes before kick off, so abandon their car wherever they see fit.

its always someone else's fault.
