Robyn Bolden & Brian Perry report on the parking situation around streets near New Brighton Beach.

Parking has a negative impact on road safety to pedestrians walking along River street and / or the Esplanade and blocks view of road for vehicles coming out of Pacific Street, especially when turning right.
