Furious woman hits out at van driver who parked 50cm from her front door


Margherita Mecenero, 47, who lives in Stoke-on-Trent, has hit out at a van driver who parked 50cm away from her doorway. She said she was left fuming after she discovered the vehicle parked so closely.

It was reported that the 47-year-old called out for the driver who eventually apologised before moving the van.

Ms Mecenero added that the cul-de-sac has been plagued with problem parkers ever since she moved in four years ago.

The bet365 employee is now calling on Stoke-on-Trent City Council to dish out fines for people who park inconsiderately.

She told StokeonTrentLive: “I opened the door around 10am to get to my car which was parked in front of the house. Right in front of me, I had this van parked on the pavement. I did not know what to say.

As it stands parking on pavements is only illegal in London.

Nonetheless, cars blocking the pathways cause serious problems for pedestrians – especially the elderly, disabled people and those who are using prams or pushchairs.

Drivers are being warned to familiarise themselves with the pavement parking regulations to avoid getting fines ahead of any potential changes.

A spokesperson for LeaseCar.uk said: “At the moment, there is a significant grey area when it comes to parking on pavements.

“Although people are advised to keep the pavements clear for pedestrians, there are many places in the UK where roads are so narrow that you have no other option but to park your car on the pavement.”

Express.co.uk has approached Stoke-on-Trent City Council for a comment.
