this article is 5 months old:S
#2
it was on the radio this morning about people getting fined for parking infront of dropped pavements (infront of peoples driveways)
#3
it is a nightmare with a pram-or for the kids on the dark nights-i don't think people realise they are causing such a problem half of the time.

Modern Britain - Selfish and no consideration. About time they clamped down on this.........also people who abuse Disabled & Parent & Toddler spaces should be shot as well. :-D

(p.s - Out of interest why are some Reg Plates blacked out and others aren't? lol)
#5
Just out of interest. How are they going to know who has caused the double parking issue?

Was thinking of starting a website for naming and shaming people using disabled bays, with time dates pics etc

Good idea?:thumbsup:

Actually, thats an excellent idea! Think it would catch on! Would be good to see it being used by authorities to (a) show they are not doing enough or (b) act on the information. (Later is unlikely - but hey we can hope!)

Fact is, on many roads, if you don't park up partially on the pavement then you block the road. You are either inconsiderate to pedestrians or cause an obstruction on the road.
#13
unfortunately a lot of roads were made before families had 3 and 4 cars..we havent much choice if we dont part partially on the pavement-as traffic cant pass down the close. The house opposite us does the same-and we cant move lower down as its a bend and someone elses driveway...further up ditto. We have a car and a van by necessity.
No excuse for palking the way these pics are though!

Exactly, there has to be a level of common sense in this.

That is very true, so what is the answer to that one - park somewhere else near and walk !


I can think of a massive number of places where that is the only reasonable parking. Lots (I would go as far to say as the majority) of residential parking fits that; if people didn't park partially on the kerb the road would be blocked. There is then of course no other realistic option.

Most, in my experience, would consider it to be more courteous to park between the two, thus not preventing either pedestrians or drivers to use the footpaths and roads respectively.

well we try to get it so people can pass on the footpath but we also have trees-so you get whipped by those. Its a nightmare really, but the only option is no landscaping, and more dropped kerbs(which the council charge the earth for!)
I hate people who park on disabled and child spaces-at the local asda we had a trolly guy used to challenge people but that didnt last long-it should be enforced though:thumbsup:

Totally agree, to park outside my house means parking on the pavemnt or you block all traffic so some common sense is needed (but since when did the government have common sense??)

Legally, you must remember that you must not drive on the pavement other than to gain lawful access to property (or in an emergency). [Laws HA 1835 sect 72 & RTA 1988 sect 34]. Of course this is barely ever enforced due to common sense and would only be ever called upon if you caused a problem by doing so.

The problem is that perhaps although partially blocking the pavement may help hundreds of drivers get by, it may cause a difficulty to a single disabled person.

Been thinking about it after getting into a fight about it with a stupid ****(moron) outside tesco a few years back.
Little scrote didn't see the problem with parking in a disabled space, could have killed him let me tell you.
A bit more mellow nowadays. :thumbsup:
#20
nikkib123
Yep I think the type of person who would have the cheek to park in these spaces would more than likely be the type to whack to one if you say anything!
I have to bite my toungue half the time - its not worth getting into fisty cuffs over.


Asked him to step outside store, think he was so embarrased at the end up, even a store manager was telling him to move his car and his girlfriend was affronted and walked away from him, result.:thumbsup:

I dont have a car therefore i dont park on the pavement :-D

But i do see the problem this being a problem..but if i did have a car there would be no where to park because the roads are too narrow and im sure it would be uproar if you left your car parked in the free shopping centre car park at nights
#22
where i stay we have no choice but to park on the path, its a little small street with no where else to park near by unless you want to have a 20min walk, it might cause pedestrians a little bit of hassel but tbh, its either they have to take a few seconds to move round the car or their is a massive crash in our street, i personally dont drive but my mum and dad both do. I dont think its a bad thing at all for cars to park on the path cos it could potentially save lives and avoid crashes, especially in my street!

I wish they would do this where i am, everyday for 3 weeks ( xmas shoppers) parked/blocked my drive cos they couldnt park in the town, I am a mile away from the town centre, some cheeky sod parked on my drive xmas eve and then had the cheek to shout at me when i told him he couldnt park there.:x


I didn't know but this bit was added to the highway code last year, so they are actually breaking the law now. £70 fine everywhere if caught and I think it was £120 in London. That will make people think twice!
You should have parked your car infront of your drive (if there was space) and blocked him in and said you dont know whos car it is! :-D
#24
Without hijacking the thread too much ...the other type of parking which gets on my t*& ends is where people decide to apparently do the right thing when their mobile goes off and decide to indicate to pull in and stop in the same position on the road , put their hazards on and take the call ....meanwhile this is always in a place where they then create a queue for all the others waiing to go past you

If a car was parked across the pavement stopping me using it i would just walk over the car. If i'm on my bike i clip the wing mirrors on purpose too (cycle path)

Nothing to be proud of - being inconsiderate is one thing, criminal damage something quite different. You clealry have no idea what a wing mirror costs to repair or how much damage you can do by walking over a car. Maybe you do and think it is justified anyway.

These are good points.
The priority, I think has always to be with leaving the FOOTpath passable to pedestrians, prams, wheelchairs - i.e. footpath users. There are real problems encountered with car parking but just don't block the footpath.
It would also be good if people had a bit of consideration with regard to dog poo and litter on footpaths.
Plus, if car drivers at a point where a pedestrian is waiting to cross or push their supermarket trolley , for instance, in the pouring rain - getting soaked while the person in the car is toasty dry and listening to their fav CD - might let the person on foot pass first, that would be nice.

Anyway, hope that the gov pass a sensible law and people have more consideration as well. The first wouldn't be necessary if the latter was already in place!!

Pah my life is worth considerably more than someones wing mirror or dented bonnet. Having been hit by cars 4 times on my bike even once by a tractor while on the path i have little respect for inconsiderate drivers.

Last time a car was in my way, I carefully went around it, I didn't end up dead nor feel the need to cause a lot of damage. What you claim to do will achieve nothing, except perhaps get you arrested.

Sounds like you need to work on your agility and balance.

I recommend the wii fit balance board.

I hate that too, worst place has to be asda and ALL the car parks in Cardiff.
the other thing that grates on my last nerve is some pensioners ( not all) they think its their god given right to park in a disable parking bay and scream at anyone under the age of 70 who parks there whether or not they are disabled. i get this a lot, im registered as disabled due to my back, somedays i use sticks to walk and they seen this and still scream at me for taking up the place! its the same with my dad hes 65 and sometimes uses a stick to aid his walking and again he get screamed at.
One old guy in asda once threaten to let my tires down if i parked in disabled..lol we parked there he didnt touch the car. He was 80 if he was a day it was so funny to watch him shake his fist at me run.. yes run into the store to complain, this was just after i had my back operation and was wheelchair bound, the store manager wiped the floor with him.


at sons school the olds park in the disabled with a badge but the disabled guys stay in the car while the agile one nips off to get the kids. In the meantime a parent that struggles parks and walks:x
