Everyone has their own opinion of people parking on the pavement.
Personally I don't see a problem with it so long as it is done safely and doesn't block access for pedestrians, wheelchair users or pushchairs.
The government is looking at changing the law to enable them to fine people who block the pavement entirely. Or, fine everyone who parks on the pavement at all.
