Nationwide bans - campaign latest

Pavement parking

Vehicles parked on the pavements force people onto the road. This is dangerous for everyone, but is a particular problem for blind and partially-sighted people, parents with pushchairs and young children, wheelchair users and others who use mobility aids.

Living Streets is campaigning with allies such as Guide Dogs and British Parking Association for nationwide bans on pavement parking.

Scotland made a ban law in 2019 - and is now waiting to implement.

In England, the Department for Transport is currently reviewing the responses to 2020's consultation on a national ban.

And in Wales local authorities have been granted new powers to tackle pavement parking.
