RE: Driv­ers face £70 fine for park­ing on the pave­ment: Pave­ments are for pedes­tri­ans think of bug­gies and wheel­chairs. As a driver you pay road tax, park on the road. Lynn Mould I’m fully for the idea, but there needs to be in­fra­struc­ture in place to al­low it. Res­i­den­tial park­ing ar­eas will need to be built and run for those un­able to park in their streets with­out caus­ing an ob­struc­tion to other road users, and peo­ple will need to ac­cept that there is no “right” of park­ing out­side your prop­erty, un­less you own a drive­way or have an of­fi­cially al­lo­cated park­ing space. Nick Pen­ni­all The pave­ments in my street are wider than the road. If this came in to force it would cause may­hem! Fair enough on streets where it’s caus­ing a dan­ger to pedes­tri­ans hav­ing to go around cars on the road, but a blan­ket rule for all roads would cause a lot of prob­lems! Ge­or­gia But­terly
