Officers released this picture of cars left by motorists who had ‘ignored’ the double-yellow road markings at Curbar Edge, near Baslow.

A spokeserson from Bakewell, Hathersage and White Peak Villages Police SNT said: “Once again double yellow lines being ignored. Numerous tickets issued.”

Derbyshire police posted this picture of cars parked on double-yellow lines at Curbar Edge, Derbyshire.

Responding to the police team’s post on Facebook, many residents welcomed officers’ ‘tough’ approach to the problem.

Tim Feeney said: “So many people think the laws of the highway don’t apply to them. I see it daily, illegal parking, tailgating, speeding, no indicators, general lack of consideration for anyone else.”

Mark Bailey posted: “Good, do these people ever learn! Selfish!”

Last summer, after restrictions were eased from the first coronavirus lockdown, residents said dangerous parking at Curbar Edge was ‘an accident waiting to happen’.

Nature lover Charles Pollard said poor parking in the National Trust car park could soon cause a fatal collision.
