A Mercedes driver has been called out for completely blocking a pavement in Iver – despite growing calls to put a stop to drivers parking with their wheels over the kerb.

Police tweeted a picture of the white car parked fully on the pavement in Wood Lane, saying they had issued the driver a fixed penalty notice (FPN).

TVP Chiltern & South Bucks tweeted: “Mercedes ownership does not give the right to completely block the pavement. FPN for obstruction issued.”

It comes after a national enquiry was launched into pavement parking, with the government’s transport committee saying there has been a “lack of progress” on the problem.

The group is now calling for evidence on the issue and, once the inquiry is completed, there is a chance that pavement parking could be banned as it is in London.

Currently there is no national ban against either on-street or pavement parking except in the latter case in London and more widely for heavy commercial vehicles.

However, it is an offence to drive onto the pavement, whether with intention to park or not.

The transport committee is calling for written evidence on the following:

  • the impact of pavement parking;
  • the enforcement of pavement parking offences; and
  • enforcement and, if necessary, reform of traffic regulation orders need to deal with pavement parking.

The closing date to submit written evidence is May 14. Visit www.parliament.uk for details on how to get in touch
