Nah, sorry. Not having a drive is no excuse for blocking pavements and putting pedestrians, and those in pushchairs/wheelchairs in danger by forcing them into the road.

It's selfish and inconsiderate.

Anyone who lives on a narrow road probably doesn't think it's ridiculous. People parking like tossers on pavements and verges infuriate me.

Sadly it's one of those things where the council say it's up to the plod to deal with, and the plod say is up to the council.

Depends. If they have a drive where they can park on then fair enough I agree. An increasing amount of places seem to be built nowadays without any parking though.
I just think it should be standard that pavements are for pedestrians. Shouldn’t be cars on at all except for getting to drives or car parks/businesses

Harlee Dean invented bus lanes. Not many people know that.

Actually, I'm not sure whether that's legal - because there's a keep left sign. So if you drive to the right of that and avoid the bus lane, you are not complying with that sign.

Eh? And drive into the oncoming traffic? It's one way coming the other way.

Why can't we get it right
Cause we all live under the same sun
We all walk under the same moon
Then why, why can't we live as one

Oh, OK, didn't know that. So why was OP driving down there anyway? Should have been no entry for non-passenger traffic, let alone bus lane.

On the road. People have brakes and steering wheels to avoid your car

That really isn't a valid argument.

if you're leaving your car in a place where it blocks the pavement or road, then it isn't an appropriate place to be leaving your car.

I don't have a drive. If I can't park outside the house then I park it further away and walk

Yep on the road, that's why people pay extra for a drive, if you can't find a house with a drive then the road is the only other option.

The Council seem to be ruining any visits to the inner city. Parking in Digbeth is a nightmare.
They say I got brains but they ain't doin' me much good.

Naah, they are trying to discourage people driving into town and to use public transport where possible, which is what every Council should be doing right now.

Took the bus on Saturday to Five Ways with the kids and then walked along Broad Street and on to the Bull Ring. Not a car in sight and it was really nice with many families strolling around and enjoying Centenary and Victoria Square. Broad Street will be great when the trams start later this year.

I know you get the train in from Rugeley and for me it’s so easy to get into town that I’m surprised so many don’t seem to think public transport is an option. I think it’s fantastic. £3.10 return from Rowley Regis.
I do understand that some will need to drive as well btw
