Tell the Department for Transport about your experience with pavement parking

The Department for Transport are running a consultation on pavement parking. 

Pavement parking is already illegal in London, but they're looking to make this illegal across the UK. This would be a really positive step forward, making streets more accessible for lots of disabled people including wheelchair users and people with visual impairments. 

Scope are planning on responding to the consultation, so we'd love to know your views and experiences of pavement parking. Please get in touch if you have anything you'd like to share. Your anonymised comments could even be used in our public consultation response! 

Here is a link to the Department for Transport's brief consultation questionnaire, which you might also like to complete. It will ask you about your experience of pavement parking in your local area, and will assist in deciding future policy for pavement parking enforcement.

    Hi I come across this obstacle all the time as well as parking on yellow lines blocking the drop kerbs 

    I once challenged a lady who did this to be told you will have to go round I'm not moving 

    Pavement parking means I cant get past on a pavement so gave to either go into the road in my wheelchair or go an alternative way
