    Those on foot are now the vunerable ones, having to avoid vehicles on the paths.

    That's never what he meant to write.

    I think there's a comma missing : Don't force yourself by, wait for gaps.

    You couldn't cycle on the pavements around here, too many cars parked on them. Pedestrians,in particular those pushing prams, have step onto the road to avoid them. There was a plan to fine drivers for parking on the pavement but if all cars were forced to park on the road we'd have total grid lock.

    Except we wouldn't because obstructing the highway is a tow-away offence, so it'd soon sort it itself out. In the short term, expect lots of whining from motorists who have bought more vehicles than they can store on their own land and either won't pay for legal storage or won't walk to/from it. It would be best to do it just after the borough/district elections (many of which are 2nd May), so they'll have 3 years to experience the benefit before being able to kick out councillors in retribution.
