A warning notice for drivers who park on the pavement

I have created these leaflets which are A5 in size (half the size of an A4 piece of paper) that you can put under the wipers of drivers who block pavements with their motor vehicles.

Being a wheelchair user myself I know how annoying it is when you are travelling along a pavement and then suddenly find somebody's vehicle blocking the way. In most cases, you can simply go onto the road to avoid the obstruction. However, if it's a busy road with lots of traffic then it's extremely dangerous and you are putting yourself at great risk by driving your wheelchair on the road. I have come very close to being hit by a car on more than one occasion and I can tell you it's a very scary experience. Drivers who force pavement users onto the road because of their selfish actions should be told in no uncertain terms that what they are doing is wrong and to change their ways immediately.

These leaflets are not legally binding and drivers can simply ignore them. However, having something like this leaflet stuck on your windscreen is embarrassing because even if you won't admit it, deep down you know that you shouldn't be parked on the pavement.

You can purchase a packet of 10 leaflets for £2.60 on eBay


I live on the south-west coast of England in a small town called Brixham.  I been confined to a wheelchair 1986 after breaking my neck in a swimming pool accident.  Computers are my saviour and I spend most days doing one thing or another on my PC.  Other interests I have include angling and amateur radio.  I also run a website and forum dedicated to looking after and caring for the Oscar fish cichlid
