A ROOTY Hill man is angry with Blacktown Council for not responding to a complaint of illegal parking which he said caused his father to be involved in a motor accident recently.
Adam Rudek said the accident was at the corner of Albert Parade and Evans Road, near a school, last month.
He said his father couldn't see a car coming towards him because his view had been blocked by several cars parked opposite St Agnes High School and a church.
"I've complained to the council and police but have had no response," he said.
"It's at its worst at 8am and 3pm when parents are at the school with their kids."
He said it was very difficult to get a council ranger to patrol the area.
A Blacktown Council spokeswoman confirmed they had a complaint from Mr Rudek and that council officers went to the location on June 28. "Officers found no evidence of vehicles parked illegally but issued six fines for other offences, including parking across driveways.
"Besides Mr Rudek, the council received one other complaint, on June 14, from a resident who had a car parked across his driveway.
"A council officer issued a fine for the offence."
She defended the council's delay in response saying there were 112 schools in the Blacktown Local Government Area that council officers had to monitor daily on a rotating basis. "If council officers get specific complaints about a school they will attend the school as a priority."
She said they issued six fines on June 28 and 15 fines around the school since June 25 last year.
