Rejected petition Make changes to highway code 244 parking on pavements.
The highway code: 244 says outside London drivers "should not" park on a path. As parking on the pavement can obstruct pedestrians, people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments and people with prams or pushchairs.
This should be updated to MUST NOT to allow enforcement against offenders.
Copy of highway code: 244
You MUST NOT park partially or wholly on the pavement in London, and should not do so elsewhere unless signs permit it. Parking on the pavement can obstruct and seriously inconvenience pedestrians, people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments and people with prams or pushchairs.
