Why is nothing done about driving on the pavement, when cyclists get fined for cycling on the pavement.
Highway Code rule 145
You MUST NOT drive on or over a pavement, footpath or bridleway except to gain lawful access to property, or in the case of an emergency.
Laws HA 1835 sect 72 & RTA 1988 sect 34
How many main roads, side roads are littered with cars parked and driving on the pavements. Too many to count. These prevent the disabled, mothers with pushchairs, children and families safely using the footpaths.
Does putting on the car hazzard lights give them some sort of protection against prosecution.
When are the police going to fine drivers for driving on the pavement as well as the few cyclists who happen to cycle on the pavement because the roads are unsafe.
I see far more cars driving and parking on the pavements than cyclists every day of the week.
