Pavements are for people - especially at night

As I walked down the main road this evening, I found the pavement obstructed by no less than 5 cars parked either entirely or partly on the pavement.

This car took up so much of the pavement
that pedestrians were forced into the road.
That's not what Maisemore pavements are for.  The Highway Code rule 244 says “You should not park partially or wholly on the pavement  unless signs permit it - which they certainly don't in Maisemore. Parking on the pavement can obstruct and seriously inconvenience pedestrians, people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments and people with prams or pushchairs”.

Maisemore Parish Council is seeking the aid of the police to stop this inconsiderate and dangerous practice.  The number plates of the offending vehicles were photographed so that they could be passed on.
