Van driver delivering danger

Have your say

Recently I was shocked to discover a van driver deliberately parking on the pavement on Ringinglow Road, despite there being a parking space at the front of the shop he was delivering to.

In fact, he drove over the parking space and swerved onto the pavement.

When I questioned him on why he was blocking the path for pedestrians, he became very abusive and was shouting in my face, clearly having no consideration for the needs of wheelchair users when I pointed out the problems his obstruction could cause.

His employers have failed to give an explanation or apology from his direct management.

This behaviour is likely to have a negative effect on businesses in Bents Green and the safety of pedestrians in the area.
