We've been seeing pics of cars parking by the Evening Post building, so it was time to swing by and take a look if a paper that views bicycles on pavement as the greatest crime of the city had been doing a bit of pavement parking.
Yes, the cars T622MNB and W618RDD again. These seem to be the official parking spots for these vehicles.
Round the corner, some building work vehicles.
If the land is the proerty of Bristol news and Media, and they are allowed to park there, then yes, driving across pavements to get there is legitimate. Which is an interesting thought: of course it is legal to drive across pavements for access, so is it legal for bikes?
Returning to the Evening Post, the big question here is: can the vehicles park here? The builders, probably. But the other two, the two we always see- they're in front of the fire exit. Which is normally meant to be kept clear to allow the people to get out safely. Are there any Evening Post staff who worry about fire safety in the building? Does the Health and Safety Executive have any opinions on the matter?
