    I'd have thought they would have much better things to do with their time up there; heroin, wife beating, racism etc.

    Something like that. Honestly I could not find the time to report someone for parking on a pavement that nearly accidentally hit me with their trailer. Kids to get to school. boxes to pack, accounts to do etc etc

    And yet, you have time to spend on here. What you mean is that you can’t be bothered. Don’t dress it up.

    Rich, it probably took me less time to report it than it did for you to do your six posts giving a commentary. Generally speaking, while I accept I might be fair game once I step onto a road, I do draw the line at someone coming onto the pavement to get me. I had a friend who was killed, walking to work on the pavement, by a driver.

    It is a local council law, not national and not everywhere.

    Andrew C! Been around a while....

    S3a Road Traffic Act will fit this - driving w/out reasonable consideration for other road users. The pavement is part of a road (as defined). Local bye law not needed, and probably not what the police will interview the van driver for.

    That too.

    Must dash. Going to try a banana ice cream laced with caramel today.

    They have. However they also know that any crims start small. This isn't to say that the guy littering or driving on the pavement goes on to be a wife beater and a murderer, but ignoring minor matters leads to a ratcheting up of what is deemed acceptable.

    I’d die to defend your right to lick ice cream, do wheelies on your e-bike and other acts of civil disobedience to the E.U. in Strasbourg.

    He needs to make sure that it's not a straight banana, just so those EU johnnies know the badass that he is.

    I’m one of those retired people you seem to have such a low opinion of. I spend quite a bit of my time taking children to school and looking after even younger ones ON FOOT. It’s sometimes quite difficult with cars, trailers, vans and lorries parked on the pavement. I suppose you drive yours around and park all over the place.

    I bet they don’t interview him at all.

    Alas no....I have a van parked at work. I use an e-bike mostly, even to take the kids to school.....

    I used to wheel my push bike and carry the youngest while the oldest walked alongside. There weren’t so many cars parked on the pavement in those days though.
