A CYCLIST has caught a council CCTV vehicle trying to spot illegal parkers while parked on a double yellow line. The video shows the bike rider Peter Mead pull over after noticing the Smart car is parked illegally. But when the cyclist knocks on the window, the council officer appears to realise he has been found out and tries to hide his face. The footage, recorded in Waddon Way at 8.15am on Tuesday (April 23), has since been posted on YouTube. "I have no problem with the council using CCTV cameras, where they are on poles in the street or on the top of cars, as we have here," Mr Mead wrote in the video's description. "But if the council are going to use these cars they MUST tell their employees not to illegally park themselves. "This driver is parked on a set of double yellow lines and then when he realises that he has been caught out, he tried to hide his face and ignores me when I tap on the window." Mr Mead adds: "I want to point out I have no sympathy for people that are issued tickets for parking illegally. "If you park on a yellow line (when it is in operation) then you should get a ticket, and in my opinion a point on your driving licence as well. "This should stop persistent offenders."
