Oi! You can’t park there!

Apparently, one in five people want an immediate ban on cars parking on pavements, according to (no surprise here) a new survey from YourParkingSpace.co.uk.  We’re amazed it’s only one in five.

Did you know that the Government is already considering such a ban?  No, neither did we.  Did you know that there wasn’t already a ban on pavement parking? No, neither did we. Apparently, Scotland (often much further ahead of England on such matters) already plans to ban it.  London has already issued the ban.

But YourParkingSpace.co.uk is asking for clarity on what many it calls grey area. 

Harrison Woods, MD at YourParkingSpace.co.uk, said: “2021 could be a landmark year in deciding if motorists in the UK are still allowed to park on the pavement.

“At present it’s a grey area in many parts of the country, so any proposals will give some clarity on the issue, even if people are for or against them.”

Let’s get this sorted. After all, who parks on pavements? People who don’t care about blocking pushchairs and wheelchairs and force people to pass by weaving in amongst the traffic, that’s who.

So, YourParkingSpace.co.uk is asking for consistency and clarity on the matter.  Consistency and clarity from the Government, that is…no comment…
