Okay, this was a reasonable exchange and the driver said sorry. However, it still goes to show that parking on developments is usually very lax in it's reference to the law and to maintaining through routes.

Even with the door closed, the space between the parked up vehicles is limited and prone to danger. I'd usually give a lorry like the one on the right, a good couple of yards space because things can be coming off them or any of a myriad of dangerous activities.

This has been a bit awkward for a few weeks with the development at Peterhouse college. Large vehicles have been coming down a very limited space. Not that they shouldn't, but they need to be making more of an effort to be safe to vunerable road users.
