Treat them as abandoned and tow away
I FULLY agree that restrictions should be put in place to restrict any cars been left for sale at a roadside.
One trader lives in Laceby. What guarantee will he give on his sales? Does he pay business rates or declare his profit from these sales, I should think not.
He says he cannot afford a proper site so to my mind he should not be in business.
Any cars with 'for sale' notices parked on any highway should be treated as any other abandoned vehicle and taken away for scrap.

CREATING a two-hour parking limit on Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes, to halt roadside car sales could cause problems and would not deal with what is causing the problem in the first place.
It would not be fair for local people visiting a relative or some other legitimate reason that would take longer than the two-hour limit and maybe not stop the problem anyway.
What I don't understand is, why allow people to put a car for sale on the roadside anyway?
It's called being cheeky and not just locally but a nationwide problem.
All that's needed is an instant fine of £50 on vehicles for sale to stop people doing it, and if the offending vehicles are there the next day have them towed away and a charge to collect them from the pound.
There are many businesses that people have to attend in Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes, that the two-hour parking limit would affect. And on a Saturday when hundreds of football fans converge on Grimsby Road, they also use it to park.
I do believe some of those vehicles for sale belong to people who live away from Cleethorpes and that's even more audacious.

The Telegraph says
Those behind the petition have come up with the idea of a two-hour waiting limit, but whilst two hours would be enough for visiting local businesses in Grimsby Road, is it fair on those who live there? And will it just move the problem on elsewhere?
