Curb Pavement Parking Plea from Guide Dogs UK Parking on the pavement may feel harmless, but it’s an act that puts many at risk. For those with disabilities, including people with sight loss, as well as parents with children, and older people, cars blocking pavements force these groups out onto the road - which is not only dangerous, it can make it impossible for people to get to work, education, or social activities. e constant fear that cars will block their way can also reduce peoples’ con dence to leave their house alone.
