Parking on Sidewalks Could Be Prohibited Throughout the U.K.
"Parking on pavements could be banned across England under government plans to ease journeys for disabled people and parents pushing prams," according to an article published by The Guardian.
London already bans parking on sidewalks (the term Americans use in place of the term pavement as used here).
"The Department for Transport (DfT) is consulting on three options in relation to pavement parking: extending the London-style ban nationwide, making it easier for councils to prohibit pavement parking and giving councils the power to fine offenders."
U.K. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps is quoted in the article saying that the changes would have the additional benefit of providing further encouragement for people to use active modes of transportation as a post-COVID public health measure.
