Police officers in Ilkley issued multiple fixed penalty notices at the weekend to vehicles parked dangerously on Hangingstone Road by the Cow and Calf.
The WYP_Ilkley twitter account said: "We understand how lovely Ilkley Moor is but this weekend we have issued 12 fixed penalty notices as the parking is dangerous and puts lives at risk. Maybe consider adding 1/2 mile to your walk and parking further away".
One resident praised the police action: "The selfish attitude of some people upsets me. Thank you for doing what you can to stop this from happening".
