Life next to ‘chaotic traffic hotspot’ in Nottingham where drivers struggle to park

A community living next to a ‘chaotic traffic hotspot’ in Nottingham have spoken of the struggles they face on a daily basis. Radford Road in Hyson Green is often described as one of the busiest streets in the city with ‘nowhere to park’.

Recently, a furious driver reportedly threatened to run over a traffic warden after receiving a parking ticket on Friday (July 1). The traffic warden said he was left with no option but to call the police while on duty in Hyson Green.

Regulars to the shops on Radford Road said they struggle to find somewhere to park in the area. Stefan Ion, who is a resident and also runs a business in the area, was handed a parking ticket on Wednesday (July 6).

The 38-year-old added: “I only left my car for five minutes and received a £35 fine. There is nowhere to park here.

“There are so many shops on this street. There should be some parking available. It is one of the busiest streets in Nottingham. It is always congested, it is an absolute nightmare.

“I just think that people here lose business because their customers risk parking tickets all the time. And you cannot park anywhere else.

“The streets around Radford Road are permit only. You cannot park there unless you are a resident. Where are you supposed to park? It is always chaos, it is a traffic hotspot – there should more parking spaces available.”

Zoobia Badar, who runs Sheeba Collection on Radford Road, added: “It affects my business because customers have to rush in, get what they need, and then get out. They risk getting a parking ticket otherwise.”

The 46-year-old said: “It is not fair. This is a busy road. People need to have access to the stores. They have nowhere to park.

“Customers would spend more time in the shop if they did not have to rush out. And the traffic gets really bad, it is always busy.”



Zoobia Badar, 46, runs Sheeba Collection in Radford Road and has raised concerns over the lack of parking space.

Ahmed Jaza, who runs a store on Radford Road near where the traffic ticket was issued the previous week, said: “I do not think a day passes by without a parking ticket being issued.

“It is just a very busy area. We need more parking available.”

The 32-year-old added: “There is not enough parking available for the number of shops on this street. Why would you leave your car here and risk getting a ticket for five minutes?”
