Re: Are our streets disabled friendly?
This is the type of dangerous and inconsiderate behavior which makes the elderly, disabled, and families reluctant to walk &/or use public transport. This builder claimed he had a permit to park his van on the pavement. Blocking pedestrians from using the pavement or risk stepping into the road into oncoming traffic and buses turning from Barry Road onto LL (in front of the Dulwich Library). This is a very busy area and yet he felt he has the right to park his vehicle for his convenience here for ease of access to his tools. Never mind the danger to children & adults trying to get on/off the bus on Saturday morning. There should be an easy way to report & fine this kind of endangering of the public. Reported to Southwark, but most likely no consequences since they don't have enough staff to do much.
Found out you can report this here:
If you notice any obstructions on the public highway, please let us know using the details below:
builders' skips or materials (eg piles of bricks, sand, concrete etc)
road works safety barriers that have fallen over
scaffolding or hoardings
signs or advertising boards that are unauthorised
shop goods or tables displaying goods on the pavement that are unauthorised
tables and chairs from pubs, cafes and restaurants
vehicles that are parked illegally or have been abandoned
traders or vendors that are illegal or unauthorised
branches, bushes or hedges that overhang or block
fly tipped rubbish
wheelie bins, trade waste bins
any other obstruction
Please report these whenever you can, because if enough people do, perhaps we can all enjoy our neighborhoods more. Better for the environment and cuts down on social isolation for the disabled and elderly.
