There’s been discussion recently in local forums about the acceptability – or otherwise – of parking on the pavement. Clearly, it’s an unacceptable practice. Except, sometimes, there doesn’t seem to be much of an option.
Take this recent situation outside the Cambridge Hotel. A transporter off-loading an elevating platform. How else could this have been done except by parking on the pavement? Would bringing a lane of the A30 to a halt have been a better alternative?
