Outlaw Parking on Pavements – For the petition go to http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/58617
Responsible department: Department for Transport
In addition to being a socially inconsiderate and unacceptable nuisance, the parking of motor vehicles on pavements presents a hazard and inconvenience to pedestrians and other legitimate users, especially those who are disabled or may require unhindered access, such as emergency services.
Currently it seems that parking on pavements is not prohibited on a national basis and it is therefore impossible to prevent people from doing so.
It is the aim of this petition to outlaw the parking of motor vehicles on pavements on a national basis such that enforcement may be carried out against those who park on pavements, thereby allowing the intended users of pavements to enjoy their unhindered usage.
