Pressing for action on pavement parking

I am calling on the Government to tackle dangerous pavement parking – which puts blind and partially-sighted people's lives at risk.

I attended a guide dogs event at the House of Commons on Monday and heard from guide dog owners how parked cars blocking paths force them to walk into oncoming traffic they cannot see.

Some face these dangerous situations on a daily basis, risking their safety every time they go shopping or make the school run.

No one should be forced to walk out into oncoming traffic by cars parked on the pavement.

The Government must take action to end problem pavement parking across the country. Blind and partially-sighted people should be able to walk the streets without fear.
