Drivers in Yatton, Bristol, parking on the pavement could be set for a shock as security bollards
may be installed to stop persistent obstructers.
North Somerset and Yatton councils are set to make a decision on whether the barriers will be put up on a section of footpath between Banberry Farm Road and The Avenue.
If installed, the bollards will cost £6,000 and will prevent motorists mounting the curb whilst driving along the High Street and causing a hazard for passing pedestrians using the lane.
Cars are usually parked on the other side of the road resulting in other motorists nudging along the road trying to avoid clipping other vehicle and thus mounting the pavement.
Yatton is a small community village, with a population of fewer than 10,000, and this move is designed to prevent congestion in the area.
Crispin Taylor, Yatton Parish Council clerk, told the Bristol Evening Post: "These are either raising the kerbs so it makes it difficult for drivers to mount them or installing bollards at regular intervals along the stretch of the pavement."
