South Wales Police Support Considerate Parking Campaign
Accessible News volunteers were pleased to have met with Inspector Robert Blunt PC Nick James and PCSO Ceri Price to discuss our Considerate Parking Campaign.
We were pleased to chat about the work we had already done along with talking about specific areas and plans to take the campaign forward.
Our founder Richard Jones said the following comment:
I was pleased to have the opportunity to meet with officers from South Wales Police to look at the problem of inconsiderate parking and great to know that we’re not going to be banging our drum on our own.
Accessible News are really pleased to confirm that the South Wales Police are going to be supporting the Considerate Parking Campaign; it helps a lot to know that the police are on board in helping to raise awareness of this problem. It is important to remember that blocking pavements, obstructing a dropped kerb and other similar parking infringements are not just problematic for people with disabilities but people with prams, pushchairs, shopping bags and walking sticks.
After the meeting Inspector Rob Blunt made the following comment:
Inconsiderate parking causes difficulties for everyone. We are delighted to work in partnership with Accessible News to promote awareness in the first instance, but also remind people that enforcement is an option if poor parking causes danger to any pedestrian or road user.
