Route blocked by cars trying to access Small Lane

Hi, I am writing regarding Small Lane, Stapleton, BS16 1AW For the last couple of years the bus service hasn’t run along this road. The bus parking bays are now not in use so the pupils at the college now park in them. At the bottom end of the road his makes it very awkward when trying to drive either up or down the road as the only places for cars to pull in and allow others to pass are in front of the drive ways in front of the houses at 105 down to 109. You cannot see from the bottom of the turning whether anyone is driving down. We have young grand children of two and three years old and cars and especially lorries are sometimes driving up onto the pavement along the driveways to allow cars to pass. It is a bit nervy when the children are leaving the house because it has become dangerous. Could the highways look into erasing the bus parking bays and putting yellow lines along half of each one to allow cars to pull in without having to drive along the front of the houses. Regards
