Are these the most pointless double-yellow lines you’ve ever seen?

Double yellow lines measuring less than two feet in length have been painted on a city centre street.

Leicester City Council said the freshly repainted lines on Chatham Street cost the authority around £1 when they were given a new coat in November.

The lines – measuring around 48 centimetres or just under 19 inches – are intended to help drivers differentiate between a disabled parking bay and a regular one.

Residents have questioned whether the lines are the shortest in the city.

Student Matthew Taylor, 21, said: “They’re pretty tiny, aren’t they?

“You’ve got to be pretty careless to have a wheel on them and get a ticket.”

A council spokesman said: “We no longer use such markings in this way, but as this one was already there, it was repainted recently as part of a wider programme of yellow line-painting.”
