Traffic warden now active in Nairn

Example of extreme bad parking from around this time last year which would now get you a ticket from Nairn's seasonal traffic warden.

At tonight's (Tuesday's) meeting of Nairn Suburban Community Council at Nairn Academy Sgt Olga Hansen gave her police report and stated that a seasonal traffic warden was now working in Nairn. Our traffic warden will be working until the end of September and she is full time.
Cllr Graham Marsden highlighted the softly-softly approach from the former warden Sandy Ford and the way that he worked by consensus rather than threat.
Olga told him that the warden would have a job to do and if the police were getting complaints they would have to take action. She added, however, that there would be a period of grace where advice and warnings would be given until folk become aware that there is a traffic warden back in the town.
Over on Green Dad's blog you can see an example of one of the warning notices that have already been issued.

Pity one wasn't around last Friday as I walked home from work at Balmakeith along ********* *******. A motorist pulled up and parked in such a way upon the path that any pedestrian had to walk into the road to get past her car. Which I had to do - perhaps I should have just proceeded to walk over the offending car?
It was the dumb look of incomprehension on the residents face when I pointed out the fact that roads are for cars and pavements are for pedestrians that said it all.
