It must be confusing for this vans driver. On one hand they are parking on the pavement legally but on the other illegally.


The van`s been parked here for a few days now.

Confused, well…. by law, so far anyway, it`s not illegal to park on the pavement but it is illegal to block the pavement in such a way that other users can`t use/access the pavement. Even that can be confusing. For example: someone walking along the pavement might find the pavement still accessible, in that case the van is not blocking the pavement so is parking legally.
