We need to wor­ship our cars less

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Stanhope Fire -

I am writ­ing in re­sponse to your ar­ti­cle ‘Dis­abled Mum Slams Self­ish Driv­ers’ (KE Jan­uary 16).

Self­ish park­ing is not con­fined just to Eureka Leisure Park, nor to al­lot­ted dis­abled park­ing bays. This prob­lem ex­tends to our pave­ments too, which are fre­quently ob­structed by ve­hi­cles (even be­long­ing to driv­ing schools, and the po­lice). Such in­con­sid­er­ate, anti-so­cial be­hav­iour also ad­versely af­fects able bod­ied peo­ple.

What is slightly en­cour­ag­ing is, that the blog I set up a few months ago - http://pave­ment­park­ing.blogspot.co.uk/ - has at­tracted 5,600 visi­tors, so there is ob­vi­ously con­sid­er­able con­cern over this is­sue.

We must learn to put peo­ple first, and wor­ship our cars less. Ted Prangnell, Ken­ning­ton
