We should all be able to rely on pavements being clear and safe. Together with our supporters, we have campaigned to end pavement parking UK-wide for years. Pavement parking is dangerous – forcing people with wheelchairs, buggies and those living with sight loss - into the road and into oncoming traffic.
The Department for Transport has now launched a consultation on pavement parking in England. This is our chance to finally put a stop to it.
We believe all options in the consultation are steps in the right direction but that a nationwide default ban, with the ability to allow pavement parking in certain circumstances, would be much simpler to enact and easier for all to understand.
Clear pavements need clear laws.
For this to be achieved we want to see London legislation England-wide. The Highway Code says you ‘MUST NOT’ park on the pavement in London (unless signs say that you can).
Please take action today.
Sign our petition calling for the law to be changed on pavement parking.
We will then direct you to the Department for Transport’s consultation, so you can complete your own response. Please make your views heard.
