10 Second Rant: Wheelchair user Andrew Haswell says parked cars put him in danger

WHEELCHAIR user Andrew Haswell, 66, says he has to put himself at risk of oncoming traffic to get round cars parked on the pavement in the town.

The retired gardener and builder said: “Cars parked on the pavement cause so many problems because it means I have to go on the road to try and get round them, it’s putting wheelchairs and people with pushchairs in danger.

“It’s the same with cars parking over ramps, they stop me from being able to cross the road.

“There should be a law in place to stop drivers doing that.”
