Cars and corners.!

What I find extremely annoying are people who insist on parking their car on a corner whilst also half up the pathway. This happens regularly. 

This makes it difficult for anyone on mobility scooters, using wheelchairs or mums with buggys. 

I have also been under the impression this is illegal,  as is parking too close to a corner. It was when I passed my driving test after reading the highway code, though lots of years ago !!!

 Hi                                                                                                                                                                                            The penalty for contravening this will be a fixed penalty notice. If not specifically prohibited, parking a vehicle on the pavement could lead to an offence of obstruction being committed. This could result in a fixed penalty notice being issued to offending vehicles.                                                                                                                                                                                                   That is the official line, but it is never enforced. In reality people don't care who they inconvenience.                                                  Regards Peter
