A Hatfield driver who blocked a footpath is going to be ticked off later when they discover a parking ticket from the police.

Officers ticketed the car in The Pastures for obstructing the footpath.

In the photos it is clear that a wheelchair, buggy or even a small child would be unable to carry on walking on the pavement.

Last year the charity Guide Dogs issued a statement to drivers who use paths as a parking space.

It read: “We need a new nationwide law to end inconsiderate and unnecessary pavement parking.

“Drivers may not always realise, but cars parked on the pavement put people with sight loss and other vulnerable pedestrians in danger.

“Imagine being forced to step out into a busy road when you can’t see, and we know the problem can be so bad that people with sight loss simply don’t leave the house to do all the things others take for granted.”
