Lovely Jubbly, nice car, but pavements are for kids not cars to be parked on. To many kids are getting hit by cars nowadays due to this.

Thanks.

I appreciate your concern ref my parking. Its a modern Persimmon housing Estate. With houses / roads somewhat crammed in as you'd expect.

And if any of the 1000's of people on this estate chose to park both sides of the road and completely off the kerb - there would 100% genuinely and honestly be no room in the centre for a car to pass. Not even close unfortunately. A single car fully in the road on one side would make passing and staying entirely on the road itself; hard.....

So whilst i understand your concern, in ref to my example - my particular road is a culdesac and the opposite side path from me is always left clear. And with minimal driveways and families with multiple cars; this is the only practical way of life for the entire estate.

Unless you have any better solution for the hundreds of thousands of families in the same situation across the UK ?
