The mechanic based of Riverdale Road and Saunders Road is still using the public footpath and road to carry out works on vehicles. Coming home this evening (again) I was unable to use the public footpath to safely go home as it was (again) being used by yours truly.

My question is, how does a person who is either disabled or a person using pram safely use the public footpath if they have to walk in the road due to an illegal street vendor?

THE CLEAN NEIGHBOURHOODS AND ENVIRONMENT ACT 2005 (“the Act”)

NUISANCE PARKING 1. Offences These offences are aimed at businesses that use the public road as a 'showroom' and people who use the road as a 'workshop'. • Section 3 of the Act makes it an offence for a person to park motor vehicles on a road or roads, where the vehicles are parked merely in order to be sold. The offence is committed if there are two or more vehicles within 500 metres of each other. The maximum fine on summary conviction is level 4 (currently £2,500) on the standard scale; • Section 4 makes it an offence to carry out "restricted works" to vehicles on a road. "Restricted Works" covers repair, maintenance, servicing, improving or the dismantling of a motor vehicle or any part or accessory. The maximum fine is level 4 on the standard scale on summary conviction.
