Cars are parking and blocking the Pavement

Reported via iOS in the Car parking category anonymously at 09:43, Tue 19 April 2022

Sent to Glasgow City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3467043.

Cars park on the bit of the pavement and block it so u either have to walk on the road (that I have seen people with prams do) or on the grass. At the corner of this bit of the pavement a car parks and means u cannot cross the road as u can to walk down dimple road then over Glenkirk drive. I have seen many people using the road to walk around the cars and also seen a woman be hit by a car and have seen near misses (normally when cars are going both direction and a person walking out at the precise second). Also To note there is a bus stop at both sides of the road so a lot of people cross the roads around there and again this makes it way more dangerous for the public.

These cat also narrow down the road and I have been reporting the issue over around 5-8 years and it has only been getting wors as other now think it is ok to park there.

Also kinda in the area used this pavement to cycle their bikes around it but have to stop and take there bikes on the grass or risk scratching the cars.

Hope this issue get fixed

  • This is still a large issue and still see people walking in the road to get around the cars and in Jan 2024 I am sure it is now illegal to park on the pavement in Glasgow.
