RAC spokesman Simon Williams said: “Our research shows that Scottish residents do recognise pavement parking as an issue. A new survey conducted by the RAC found that nine in 10 motorists in Scotland were concerned above pavement parking, with 71% saying that vehicles blocked pavements in their neighbourhoods.

“Drivers are, however, split on what they consider to be reasonable parking practice. Around 40% told us partially parking on a pavement is acceptable so long as access for pavement users is not affected, and a similar proportion said that vehicles should never be allowed to park on pavements.”
