Dangerous illegal parking on pavement and white line corner.

Reported in the Objects in the road category anonymously at 15:36, Sat 29 June 2019

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 3 minutes later. Council ref: 1678448.

A transit van regularly parks on the single white line on the corner with a trailer. They park on the pavement so pushchairs and wheelchair users and pedestrians regularly have to go in the road. This is a blind corner so very dangerous and illegal.

  • This van continues to be parked dangerously, often right across the pavement, with a trailer in tow, meaning pedestrians have to use the road - okay if you are young and fit, not so much if you are in your eighties or nineties and struggle to get around.

  • Parking so dangerously this needs to be addressed.

  • Please please address this - pushchairs and disabled users have to go into the road on a blind bend. The person parking does not even live in Ringswell Gardens.

  • Still there - right across the pavement at this moment. Surely something can be done to get the driver to park more considerately.

  • I don't think anyone is reading these comments you may need to open a new case

  • Still there. Mind you, the trailer is a convenient place to chuck your rubbish.

  • I reported this originally. You need to open a new case as they closed this one saying they couldn't do anything and I had to report it to the highways department for a change in law, as they cant penalise what he is doing apparently. Maybe a few notes on the windscreen might help, I'll start them if you do too!!

  • I wonder what they'd say if someone had an accident because they'd had to walk in the road because the pavement was blocked by this character (like it is right now).

  • Banes PLEASE investigate!!! Poster have you put a note on their windscreen? Do you know where they live?
