It’s forcing folk onto the road and it’s dangers. This lady is deaf blind and never able to know if another car is about to come, her guide dog refused to go through the gap because it’s too narrow, it’s very unsafe for visual impaired people with guide dogs, and other people with any assistant dogs, prams, wheelchairs etc.
Please be considerate and be kind enough not to park your cars on pavement.

A Members’ bill was proposed in the Scottish Parliament in 2010 by Ross Finnie MSP, to give councils greater enforcement powers over pavement and dropped kerb parking. In the public consultation, 83% supported the proposal, and 30 MSPs across the 5 main parties backed legislation. Unfortunately, there wasn’t time before the end of the parliamentary term to enact legislation. Joe Fitzpatrick MSP has now declared he will take forward legislation in this area.
