People living by the Borders General Hospital are concerned at the increasing amount of traffic in the ares since changes to the hospital's parking have come into force.
Some members of hospital staff have been parking in Darnick.
"Normally there wouldn't be any cars here at all, so the volume of cars has dramatically increased. There is lots of people of a morning who is actually struggling to find a place, driving around moving, this is a route school children use safely to school, this is a bus route as well. Buses are having to reverse, I have heard, and actually can't get up and down easily. So there is a huge potential for an accident".
