Parking on Pavements
Whilst it is currently not an offence to be parked on the pavement in Scotland, per se, legislation does exist to allow officers to deal with these type of incidents.
In most cases the offence of causing an obstruction will be most pertinent. There is no exact definition of obstruction, but a rule of thumb would be whether or not a pram or wheelchair could still navigate past, without having to going onto the roadway.
In most instances it will be necessary to examine the individual circumstances and determine what, if any, offences have been committed. Continue reading

Work is due to get under way this week to improve safety at various locations on Leith Walk, including what is believed to be the first installation in Scotland of a particular type of cycleway delineators. They will be put in place at locations on the east and west side of Leith Walk at Pilrig Street and the east side of Leith Walk at Brunswick Road. This work is being carried out by MacKenzie Construction.
In addition to these new delineators, Leith Programme Phase 4 contractor Crummock will carry out a series of remedial works to road surfacing defects, road gullies/manholes and additional safety markings to the cycleway. The same traffic management sub-contractor will be used in order to coordinate the works and to minimise traffic disruption while these works are ongoing.
The programme of construction works will be as follows:
- 18th April – 20th April: Crummock undertaking remedial works to road surfacing defect on the northbound lane at Pilrig Street junction
- 23rd April – 4th May: MacKenzie Construction undertaking works to install cycleway delineators at the locations noted above
- 23rd April – 4th May: (for a period of up to 2 weeks) Crummock undertaking further defect remedial works at various locations between Iona Street and Brunswick Street
