More than a dozen cars towed from Snowdonia beauty spot in illegal parking crackdown

Drivers who left their cars at the side of a road in Snowdonia have had their vehicles towed as North Wales Police clamped down on illegal parking.

Despite signs warning road users not to park on the side of the A5 next to Llyn Ogwen motorists are continuing to flout the rules.

On Saturday at least 13 vehicles were removed after obstructing footpaths and forcing pedestrians into the road as well as making it difficult for other passing motorists.

Traffic Wales North & Mid tweeted: “Can you spot the ‘No Parking’ sign? @NWPolice have been busy today dealing with various inappropriately parked vehicles on the #A5 Ogwen.

“Vehicles obstructing footway resulting in pedestrians walking along the carriageway. 13 vehicles in total have been recovered.”

Recovery trucks spent several hours going back and forth dealing with the issue. Over the past few months such instances have been commonplace across the national park with police recently announcing a crackdown on “inconsiderate parking.”

Some car parks in Snowdonia have also introduced pre-booking systems in a bid to combat congestion in the area over peak times.
