A local resident was left angry after his neighbors allegedly parked on the sidewalk

He was furious after spotting two cars parked on the sidewalk in front of properties along Black Prince Avenue in Cheylesmore.

And he was particularly annoyed that the stationary vehicles obstructed the public sidewalk on the street, it is said Coventry Live.

The local resident was puzzled as to why motorists allegedly chose to park their cars on the sidewalk rather than in their own driveways, which he said were completely empty.

The man then decided to submit the photo showing the two vehicles spanning the sidewalks.

And he added that poor parking conditions mean that pedestrians are constantly being forced to walk around cars onto a “mud patch” or onto the street.

He says it causes great inconvenience to the disabled, the elderly and strollers who cannot reach the sidewalk.

The angry resident told CoventryLive: “More reckless parking today on Black Prince Avenue, Cheylesmore, causing people to go through a patch of mud or onto the street.”

“Wheelchair users and pram users regularly travel this route, and of course pedestrians as well.

“There was even a free parking space in front of the house, but they chose to park on the sidewalk. Unbelievable!”

Contrary to what many people believe, there is no law against pavement parking in the UK other than London.

Under UK law, Rule 244 of the Road says that drivers outside of London should ‘not’ park on the pavement, rather than ‘must not’.

Outside the capital, you can partially park your car on the sidewalk, but it must not be an obstacle.

So while it’s illegal to drive on the sidewalk, it’s not necessarily illegal to park on it.

To make matters worse for residents, the rule is notoriously difficult to enforce.

Unless a police officer actually witnesses someone pull onto the sidewalk before parking, they probably don’t have the direct evidence they need.

Parking on sidewalks has been banned in London since the Greater London Council (General Powers) Act 1974.

The law prohibits motorists from parking on city streets in the capital if their car’s wheels are resting on sidewalks, grass verges or land between lanes.

If you’re caught parking on the pavement in London, you could face a hefty £70 fine.
