Should Pavement Parking Be Banned In England And Wales?

January 9, 2015

Vehicles being parked on pavements can be annoying for some walkers but for those who have difficulty getting around, being forced to walk in the road to get past cars is especially dangerous.

Pavement parking was banned in London 40 years ago, but MPs will debate whether to introduce a blanket ban across England and Wales.

Tim Muffett reports.

    As a motor car parked on the pavement obstructs free passage along the pavement, it is already illegal.

    So why do MPs wish to debate the matter?

    Can they not discuss something of far greater significance, such as whether Iain Duncan Smith is bad, mad or possessed by a demon?

    I agree with the two comments above. However I get driven mad by pavement sparklers cos I’m a wheelchair user and often have to go in the road as not enough room to get through on the pavement. It puts me and my Hearing Dog at serious risk. I hate shared surfaces as I can’t hear cars coming. Shared surfaces with pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles sharing same surface is a recipe for disaster and a cyclist in Southend has already died on one. These should be banned
