A car was parked here, outside the section of dropped kerb which serves the front door and bins, carefully leaving clear the right hand section which could be used to park a small vehicle.

Who would be crossing the road here? The traffic warden got it wrong and this has been compounded by the back office getting it wrong.
This should not be happening.
