Show support for the Transport Select Committee’s report asking for the Government to change the law on pavement parking (Guide Dogs)
When cars are parked on pavements, people with a vision impairment may have to risk their lives by walking into the road just to get by them.
A survey by Guide Dogs showed that 97% of people with a vision impairment encounter problems with street obstructions, and 90% of those had experienced trouble with a pavement parked car.
A standardised law across the country, which the Transport Select Committee has recommended, would make it clear that pavement parking should be the exception, not the norm for motorists, and give local authorities real power to properly tackle this problem. We want a clear law where drivers cannot park on the pavement unless in a specifically designated area, in line with Greater London.
