Bad parking blocks access

Bad parking always on this corner. The drivers do not consider that vehicles need to get past and frequently vehicles are unable to get through.

If an emergency vehicle came along here they would NOT be able to get passed.

Also they block the pavements so people in buggies or wheelchairs cannot get past and would have to go into the road which is obviously dangerous!

This needs to be sorted URGENTLY.

Yellow lines or putting bollards might stops people

  • It’s typical of motorists to not give any consideration to pedestrians. This happens all over Bristol. If a vehicle has been parked on the pavement, it is illegal and the police can get involved. However, they’ll only act if the vehicle has been driven up and abandoned on the pavement sufficiently enough so that wheelchairs and buggies can’t get past (just as you have described). Please call the police on #101
