In a series of Facebook posts, the Leeds South Neighborhood Policing Team slammed inconsiderate drivers for causing an obstruction by parking over pavements or junctions. They urged drivers to 'be mindful' when parking so as not to block the road for wheelchair users or pushchairs. Police shared these six pictures of how NOT to park:
