Going right up to the wall is taking the p!ss tough.
I wouldn't mind if they were just mounting the curb or whatever, but making the path impassable is a hazard.

some roads are just not big enough to park your car on the road otherwise you could well end up blocking the road

So you wait for any vehicles to pass and then walk around.

then the cars will have lights on, making them even more identifiable in the dark.

Ya couldn't really make this up..it doesn't get dark enough that you'd miss a parked car in the middle of the countryside on a cloudy night, let alone anywhere with paths.

Better to park it on the pavement, than block a cycle lane.

It's indefensible, irresponsible and a public safety hazard. Attacking the OP for the purposes of defending this kind of idiotic parking is complete bollocksology.

No the parked cars/vans won't have lights, don't know if there were street lights, OP did'nt say, it was raining and Dark, and where I live there are plenty of eejits that drive without their lights on, so yes I can see a problem for the OP, if you can't, well then I'd love to live in the cosy little atmosphere that you do where everything is perfect.

plenty of people drive around you without their lights on in the dark whilst it's raining?
ah stop now would ya, you're clutching at straws.



not everything is perfect, no, but it certainly has the illusion of being perfect compared to the absolute shíte that some people complain about on here.

There are street lights, but they're pretty poorly space out.

Also, it's straight after a bend, so a car could come flying around the corner, and I'd barely have a chance to react.

You should make your way around the cars that are offending you a bit quicker then.
