    I see that you are in fact closing down. Passed the shop today and there's a notice in the window. So what happened?

    Up until our last post it has been gossip, but the decision to put double yellow lines on the street is a bad one that will have an adverse affect on town centre shopping that doesn't fit our business model.

    Passed through Wick yesterday. Great to see Bridge street flowing so freely, without the usual congestion. And great to see small shops like Birons doing so well. Windows positively full of stuff and wheelbarrows and other items racked up on the pavement,not just in front of their own shop, but others as well. Great to be able to see stuff in shops without it being obscured by badly parked vehicles.

    I may stop off in some if your free car parks on the way north to do some shopping!

    Is this place ever closing? The windows seem as rammed with as much stuff as ever, which is so much easier to see now that there is much less vehicles parked in the way.

    The double yellows are full of parked cars, and I don't see a problem. People are voting with their cars!

    Weekers don’t fear double yellows. They’re made of sterner stuff in the east of the county!

    About time an artic just ran up the side of them all. The drivers might be a bit more reluctant to selfishly park on double yellows and cause congestion on Bridge Street once they see the state of their cars.

    Got nothing to do with the old bill, parking matters have been decriminalised and is a matter for the Highland Council.

    Is that right, so you cannot be done by the cops for parking on a double yellow?

    You couldn't get a Bobby out to investigate a burglary to your house within a week of the incident so it seems unlikely they are going to give it the blue lights to Bridge Street because someone had parked for more than ten minutes.

    If you park in a dangerous manner then the police might feel your collar, but parking issues general is now the responsibility of the local council. Many matters regarding parking are still some unclear, but parking matters has been decriminalised and have nothing to do with the police.
    A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.

    Fines for parking on yellow lines are issued by, and are the responsibility of, local authorities now. In general they are nothing to do with the police and they will only issue a ticket if a vehicle is obstructing the highway or posing a danger to others.
