Despite Councils across the country could soon be fining people for parking on the pavement with a £70 FINE for parking on kerbs.

 

The Local Government Association (LGA), which represents 370 English and Welsh councils, says authorities should be allowed to stop drivers leaving their cars mounted on kerbs, paths and verges.

But since ownership of cars has increased and the demand for more space by residents who are paying for permits.
