Good morning I have a safety issue with the number of cars that park so close the edges of my drive. Wallace Street has a lot of units and a not enough parking in them. So there are a large number of cars that park on the street. It seems that most of them are high 4WD's. I have started to back into my driveway space so that when I exit I am forward facing. It is very dangerous trying to exit. Each side of me there are usually high 4WD's, parked right to the edge of my drive, some even over the drive. I cannot see through or over them to see oncoming traffic, so I edge out very slowly, normally to a blast of a horn as someone whips by. Believe me, there have been some near misses. It also concerns me as I often have my young granddaughter in the car with me. Wallace Street is a through road from the Harbour Bridge/Sarsfield St onto Grey Lynn and beyond and therefore extremely busy, especially in the morning with vans, trucks and traffic. One photo is attached, but I can furnish you with 34 photos taken just in the last few months of these cars if you tell me where to send them to, some cars also have tow bars, parked perilously close to my drive exit. Is there any chance you could paint a one metre yellow strip either side of my drive so cars don't park over it. I really feel strongly this is a safety issue and an accident waiting to happen. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much
