PARKING, OFTEN A THREAT TO CHILDREN. TEN WAYS OF WRONG PARKING POLICY

Parked vehicles cause a restriction of sight distance for the child or adult pedestrian who steps into street traffic from between these parked vehicles. Parking on the kerb often compels pedestrians to walk on the carriageway, thereby enhancing the danger of collisions between cars and pedestrians. Better regulations for parking and a better geometrical design for roads in residential areas as regards parking is wanted. /TRRL/
