The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

Obstruction Photo for West Sussex Police

West Sussex Police's Operation Crackdown requires all reports to be supported be evidential photos, but it doesn't allow photos to be uploaded with the form, instead they have to be placed somewhere on t'internet and a link provided. Hence this post. So, if you're not West Sussex Police you can move on to a far more interesting blog post.

(But just by way of a tiny bit of explanation: it's an inconvenience that we are currently trapped in this street (thankfully at a friend's house, not literally sitting in the street), it's far more of an issue, in an area with a high density of elderly folk, that access to the road is currently blocked for ambulances and fire engines.)


  1. Wild and crazy! The silver Toyota is up for its MOT on June 17. It failed last year with 83,372 miles on the clock. Failed in '13 and '12 as well. It's only averaged 3,300 miles per year since 2013. And there's no trace of the blue vehicle whatsoever. Yes, I did hanker to be a detective in a previous life . . .

    1. The road in question is the nearest unrestricted parking to a commuter railway station, so the person with the silver car probably lives just up the road and mainly uses it to save on a bit of walking to the station (rather than thinking that a bike would be much more cost efficient and easier to park). Interesting about the blue car seemingly not existing. If there's not an innocent explanation for that then hopefully Operation Crackdown will pick up on it.

  2. Hmm, false plates? The boys in blue will be on to that one I should think.
