I REFER to a consideration by the Department of Transport considering the banning of vehicles parking on pavements and footpaths (Warrington Guardian, March 12).

I reside on a housing estate that was built in the 1930s when very few people owned motor vehicles.

The width of the carriageways on this estate are quite narrow, in fact the width of the carriageway in the road I reside in is barely 10 feet wide.

In fact only one vehicle can drive down the road at a time, two vehicles passing each other is virtually impossible.

The issue that needs to be addressed is the inconsiderate and dangerous parking of motorists.

More penalty tickets need to be issued for inconsiderate parking and in dangerous positions, and the revenue generated used to maintain footpaths and carriageways.
