Parking on pathways
- Dave (18th Jun 2017  13:58:56)

Just a suggestion for whoever organised the event at the church centre yesterday.
Next time think about parking and take responsibility of your guests/visitors who kindly dumped cars on paths.
I'm sure your boss upstairs wouldn't be very happy if a child was knocked over due to having to walk in the road!!

Hi Dave, it's not God's duty to enforce parking in Liphook. In fact Hampshire, like most councils has consistently refused to ban pavement parking for practical reasons (it's a lot cheaper than insisting developers provide adequate off road parking and you can squeeze more houses in), but if a car is actually blocking a footpath or carriageway you should call the police who are the only ones to act as it's then a criminal matter. Although they can ticket or remove cars which are blocking paths per se, the council can't unless they've pro actively designated it a no pavement parking zone. Nor can God, (I mean he could send a thunderbolt or something, but we won't go down that path... no pun intended).

I've heard there was once a copper in Liphook but that was back in 1903 I think!!!

The parking made getting in and out of our drive dangerous as the view was blocked until you had pulled out into road very unsafe
With the speed of cars that use the portsmouth road Luckily no accidents this time

Ian, how exactly do you expect a church to take responsibility for people parking on a public road or it's verge? I think I said it was a job for the police and the police only, you must have missed my point, touche, please don't be a prat.

If people are parking on a public footpath, by all means call the police, not the vicar. And before you say 'but he should have gone out there and blah blah blah" NO he definitely shouldn't. If the poster had brought it to his attention, he might have issued a REQUEST on the tannoy, but that is about it! Vicars are not above the law.
