Pavement Parking leading to damage

Reported in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 12:06, Fri 11 May 2018

Sent to Bristol City Council 4 minutes later

Pavement parking is a massive problem on Dirac Road and this is leading to the pavement surface becoming damaged. Something needs to be done to prevent motorists from parking on the pavement.

Install bollards or pins to stop pavement parking, this will be cheaper in the long run. Not only that in the meantime a nuisance is caused to pedestrians, especially those with pushchairs or are in wheelchairs.

Please do something about this ongoing, relentless issue

  • Another example of nuisance parking that BCC should be dealing with. It’s your responsibility to provide safe streets for pedestrians and take preventative measures to reduce likelihood of motorists causing an obstruction to pedestrians. Pavements are for pedestrians NOT cars. In addition cars driven on to the pavement causes damage that will ultimately need to be repaired. Who’s paying for it?
