Blocked in: the impact of pavement parking

Guide Dogs has produced a new report on pavement parking, and is calling on the government to bring forward proposals for a new law. The report is based on responses to an online survey publicised by Guide Dogs and other organisations.

The report found that more than 95% of people with sight loss have been forced to walk in the road by pavement parked vehicles, and one in five vision impaired people has been injured as a result of a vehicle parked on the pavement. To find out more and read the full report, click here.

In Wales, the BBC has reported on the campaign by Rhian Morris from Bridgend to outlaw pavement parking. You can find out more here.
