LETTER: Write to MP about parking blight

Pavement parking continues to blight streets up and down the country. Cars parked on pavements act as an obstruction, particularly for those who are blind or partially sighted, parents with buggies and people in wheelchairs.

At its worst it puts people’s safety at risk by forcing them into the road. I am urging people to write to their local MP, asking them to vote for the Pavement Parking Bill to be passed at Parliament on 4 December to put a stop to pavement parking.

Let’s save our pavements for people and make our streets better places to walk for the whole community.

Julia Crear, Regional Director (South), Living Streets
