Tarvin High Street

Pavements could be made safer for people with disabilities, and families, under new proposals to ban antisocial parking unveiled by the government on 31 August 2020.
Parking on pavements disproportionately affects people with visual or mobility impairments, those assisted by guide dogs, and wheelchair and mobility scooter users. More than 95% of wheelchair users and people with visual impairments say they had problems with vehicles parked on pavements.
Three options are proposed in the consultation launched today
* Improving the traffic regulation order process to make it easier for councils to prohibit pavement parking in their areas.
* Giving councils powers to fine drivers who park on paths.
* A London-style nationwide ban on pavement parking.
Closing date is 22nd November 2020.
