I read with interest about the move to calm, the traffic on the busy Nore Road in Portishead.The councillors and North Somerset Council highways chiefs state they are concerned for pedestrians' safety.If they are concerned about the safety of all concerned perhaps they can explain why so many vehicles are parked on the pavements in Portishead in some cases completely blocking the pavements that even pedestrians have to walk into the road to get past.Members of the public that either have prams or buggies etc, including wheelchairs, either motorised or manual, have no chance of passing these vehicles.If I remember correctly, North Somerset Council stated last year that it was going to stop this but, as usual, all talk and no action.Name and address supplied
