Parking on pavement

Reported in the Parking category anonymously at 08:08, Wed 27 November 2019

Sent to Rutland County Council 2 minutes later

The car takes up the whole pavement forcing children and prams to go into the road. The road has a national speed so cars come down fast and there's a blind bend so people can't see children in the road. Also it's on route to a school so plenty of children and prams. It is also forcing cars into the muddy verge bringing mud back onto the road which will cause accidents. The owner has parking spots round the corner side street but will not use them.

  • Unless there is a signed prohibition in place or a waiting restriction marked by double yellow lines, civil enforcement is not possible. In England & Wales (outside London) there is no blanket ban on footway parking. The Police may be able to advise.

    To propose restrictions, please contact your parish council in the first instance to see if they wish to support your concern. It may be that the matter could be discussed at a local level with the owner of the vehicle so that they are aware of their impact on children in particular.
