This is a very big problem on Morton street with people parking on the pavements . I have seen people with prams walk out into the road and this is very dangerous. This happens everyday and something needs to be done before someone is hit by a car. I’m a resident on Morton street and we are sick of people parking their cars going to get a bus or train to work and leaving their vehicle parked on the pavement. I have emailed highways and the traffic people from the council and nothing is getting done about this . The street needs to be made one way and parking restrictions put in place to stop this. Feel free to come and have a look and take photos of u need more info please email me.

  • Now overgrown with weeds from the fence so even less room. Opposite is a bin that is always all over the road where I have to walk because of pavement parking.

  • This is a constant ongoing issue on Morton street, you are often forced to walk in the road as you often can't walk on the pavement.

    If you had disability issues, or your a wheel chair user forget it you won't be able to do it. This should be illegal, and car owners should be fined.

  • Again this morning, going about my usual business i was yet again forced to on the road as you can't walk on the pavement, forget it if you have mobility issues, or your wheelchair bound.

    Sort this out before you have an accident.

  • As a resident of Morton street most of the time I’m unable too park anywhere near my house let alone the street. Cars parked on pavements all day and longer people park hear then go off too work in the city most days we have arguments where people won’t give way with horns blaring all evening. I think this street should be made one way yellowed lined and permit parking for residents only because this street is a bloody joke got too be the worse in Bristol we been trying too get this issue fix for years but nobody seems interested. Most probably because they don’t live hear so it’s not there problem. SO PLEASE GET THIS SORTED

  • As u can see parking outside the garages. Now if this was Clifton then things would get done all because it’s the posh part of Bristol. We live in Redfield and nothing gets done as we are not gd enough of permit parking. My neighbour even told him not to park on the pavement and the drivers reply was well walk out on the f***ing road. This is not gd enough that we are getting abused for telling drivers not to park on the pavement.

  • Got abused tonight for walking in the road as I could not walk on the pavement. Why should we get abused from car drivers as we can not I repeat we can not walk on the pavement due to cars parking inconsiderately on the pavement it’s not on that we can’t even walk on the pavement. Pavements are meant for people and not cars. Something definitely needs to be done . I have spoke to numerous people who live and who have to come down this street and they are fed up of this issue please sort this out
