Pembrokeshire Access Group – in collaboration with Pembrokeshire County Council and Dyfed-Powys Police – have designed several flyers to tackle the issue of problem parking in Pembrokeshire.
The flyers politely ask drivers to avoid parking across dropped kerbs or on pavements. People who use wheelchairs, blind and vision impaired people, people with prams and pushchairs and older people may be left stranded or have to go hundreds of yards further than necessary to complete their journey.
Drivers are also asked not to park is spaces reserved for blue badge holders, as the spaces are specifically designed to give wheelchair users and those with restricted mobility a larger space that is closer to facilities.
Each flyer is designed to be placed underneath the windscreen wipers of an an offending person’s vehicle. While their is no penalty handed out when a driver finds a flyer on their vehicle, it’s hoped drivers will be reminded of the potential consequences of their actions.
To request copies of the flyers, please call Alan Hunt, the Access Officer for Pembrokeshire County Council, on 01437 764551.
