The yellow lines in Odney Lane are on the junctions and on the right hand side (as you look down from Sutton Rd) and there to keep the road clear, if they were not there the lane would be blocked, especially at weekends. You can park on the left side at the top and bottom. The lane is quite busy with both members of the Odney Club, folk leaving the Ferry and the public using the common, Odney also has regular deliveries by large vehicles, plus the emergency services would need access in the event of fire etc.

Sorry but my view is simple, if you park on yellow lines, you deserve to be fined.

Gazzetta's  and "A Cookham Resident's" posts are prime examples of comments made by people who casually look at a situation and then
pass irrational judgement rather than first analysing the reasons behind the status quo.

The most important reason for double yellow lines is to stop uncaring and selfish idiots parking at that spot thus preventing a safe
passage for emergency vehicles to pass.

I repeat Ö the weekend parking on the double yellows by The Crown is the perfect example of uncaring selfish idiots, and the sooner
the Council attack this problem on a regular basis by issuing parking fines every Saturday and Sunday, the better.

I cannot see what purpose yellow lines serve on Odney Lane.  If people park on those lines they are not causing an obstruction or preventing the flow of traffic.

Well said Watchman.  I totally agree. 

What is wrong with walking to the river/Odney or the pub?

Everyone seems to be totally happy to spend hard earned cash on gym memberships and ever increasingly expensive petrol to get to the gym, pub, shop, etc; why not walk and save some pennies?  You'll get just as much a sense of well being, from the exercise, saving money and by burning less fossil fuel.

They cut hair very well, service is polite and professional and I'm in need of a new tattoo, so bring it on.

Double Yellow Lines are there to ensure that the traffic DOES flow smoothly.
Cars parked on double yellow lines deserve to be penalised because they block the otherwise smooth flow
The sooner the illegals realise this the better.

Summer Weekends in Cookham are notorious for visitors cars parking wherever they see a gap, be it on Single or Double Yellow lines,
or No Waiting areas without any thought or consideration for anyone else.
THIS IS WRONG.

A classic example is the at the top of Berries Road by way of The Crown PH Ö   
The double yellow line parking here extends from the High Street all the way down to where the road becomes Private.
There are often times when these leeches park in the Private section of Berries Road itself - before trotting off to the pub.
It is so bad that should an emergency vehicle ever be required down Berries Road, either an ambulance or a fire tender,
the illegally parked cars would make it almost impossible to get past - and the day will come when there will be no alternative
for the emergency vehicles but to shunt these cars out of the way in order to get to the emergency.   

Meanwhile, the publican does nothing to warn or deter his patrons from parking illegally - he just welcomes their ££££££'s !

So hooray for the police and/or traffic wardens who penalised those illegally parked cars on Saturday.
I wish it would happen every weekend and not just the once in a blue moon.

Remember - It is specifically for benefit of locals that these cars are penalised - in the hope that by ticketing them they might
think twice about parking illegally in the future.

And don't get me started on the litter left behind ....

Why not trade in family cars two and three and invest in a Yamaha scooter 125 cc, for your local trips. There are places in the world where the scooter is king, why not Cookham! A thousand pounds is not bad for easy parking.

(From a Cookham Resident)

On Saturday 2nd June on the road approaching the Odney Club, several cars were given a Parking ticket  for been parked in double yellow lines.My question is, why the yellow lines on that road?

We donít have much parking in Cookham and that area is perfect for families to let the children run freely without the danger of traffic.

Do we have to choke everything up so the locals canít go anywhere in Cookham without the fear of a parking ticket??

And these will be the very people saying that the school routes are dangerous - it beggars belief that they cannot see they are the ones making it dangerous!!!!

In reply to your post Paris -

I was seriously gob smacked witnessing a 'meet and greet' American style - teacher/ Helper collecting children from cars for the school in the High Road.

Teacher/Helper was oblivious to the rest of the traffic, with a queue of cars (mostly parents) dropping their darlings off to school one by one.

The traffic was held up even more so with this Teacher/Helper negotiating with one child to even get out of the car (must add - nothing physically wrong with said child) !.

I was going to suggest, perhaps the parents could be given areas around Cookham to 'park and walk'... perhaps arranged by 'class / year' and  rotated. They could use the church car park / doctors car park / parade / other side of the Alfred major park etc..

At least this way - kids would be healthier and able to walk to school. less traffic hold ups in a small village and actually safer for all round than a personal 'drop off' holding up traffic and causing an issue for those trying to get to work!
