Monty: widen the pavements!

Here is a van already in our database, YA55VDY,  usually making full use of the build-out on whiteladies road by the pedestrian crossing, or up Cotham Hill.

Here they have tried to get as far up on the pavement as is possible on a day that the locals have put their bins out, yet the recycling lorry is held up by it.

We propose: widening the pavements of montpelier so that vans will be able to get more onto them. This will keep through traffic flowing.

The other possibility would be to ban the placement of even small recycling/rubbish bins on the pavement, as it forces vehicles to park 50cm further away from the buildings (taking into account roof overhangs).
