The House of Commons Transport Select Committee has launched an inquiry into ‘Pavement Parking’. Pavement parking is when one or more wheels of a vehicle are on the footpath. As well as creating obstacles for people wanting to use footpaths, Councils face additional costs to repair damage to surfaces which are not designed to take the weight of motor vehicles. As this is a devolved issue, this inquiry only relates to England.
Pavement parking can cause particular difficulties for people with long-term conditions and mobility issues, such as some people with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). In order to provide feedback to the Transport Select Committee on behalf of people with RA and JIA, we’re asking people to spend two minutes filling out this very short survey: bit.ly/2WTdsro
