Chronic hazard in the dark

Dear Spurtle, 

Lots of talk about Broughton Street redevelopment. Lots of talk about safety etc., but just along the road another major hazard for pedestrians has gone unchecked for years.

The car rental company on East London Street, by day keeps a clear shop and entries into and out of their garage. At night and especially Sunday nights, cars seem to be abandoned – creating a real hazard for pedestrians. Walkers are forced onto the road, and for those with mobility or visual difficulties this is dangerous.  

The scene below is a regular one at weekends.
