Campaigns > Say No! to pavement parking

OxPA logo

Space invaders are coming! The County Council wants to mark out pavements in East Oxford for pavement parking. If their plans are approved, some of the space that people use to go about their neighbourhood will be taken over for car drivers to store their private cars.

Highway robbery! The Council proposes leaving 1 metre for people on foot.  But this will mean:

And it won’t work!  The evidence from William Street and Ferry Road proves it won’t. There, despite white lines supposedly telling drivers how much of the pavement they can use, some simply take much, much more.

The streets are not just for car owners  –  children and many elderly people do not own cars, and their right to use safe and convenient streets must be protected.

Streets are for people – so don’t be driven indoors! Say NO to Pavement Parking in East Oxford
