Manchester has been ranked as the country’s worst city for pavement parking, according to new research from the charity Guide Dogs. The charity has released a list of the worst offenders ahead of a key debate on the Pavement Parking Bill scheduled for December 4th.
Sixty percent of Manchester residents surveyed indicated that on-pavement parking was a regular issue, but other problem cities included Liverpool, Cambridge and Cardiff. Southampton came last on the list with the cleanest streets, but 37% of residents polled there indicated that they often or always find parked cars on the pavement of their street.
Guide Dogs is calling on MPs to support the campaign against pavement parking and make streets safer for pedestrians. More than three quarters of those polled in each city said they would support a law preventing dangerous pavement parking.
