TOWN leaders opposing proposals to extend double yellow lines in Main Street, Frodsham, say police should do more to enforce existing 'No Waiting' orders.
Town councillor Maureen Turner said: 'Police just drive about and even if they see someone parked illegally, they just ignore it.'
The extension to the double yellow lines along Main Street from outside the Spar shop has been proposed by the county council to help cars emerging on to the main road from the Fountain Lane junction.
However, the move has prompted protests from traders, who fear the extension will harm their businesses as it will stop customers parking outside their shops.
Town and borough councillor Brian Lloyd said the extension would be 'going too far'.
He added: 'The lines there at the moment are not a scrap of use because no one bothers about them. Policing the yellow lines is the real problem.' The council will pursue town and borough councillor Nigel Griffiths's idea that the pavement outside Spar be extended to form parking bays for adjacent retailers.
