Supporting Guide Dog Owners

Margot is working with the charity Guide Dogs to raise awareness of the problems that arise when car owners park on pavements.

Although illegal, some drivers park on pavements, which drastically reduces the ability of those in wheelchairs, those with pushchairs or those who are blind or partially sighted to be able to safely use pavements. Guide dog users in particular will often find that their dog guides them home, rather than attempt to steer their owner into the road and, potentially, into oncoming traffic.

Margot believes that everyone in or visiting Stourbridge should be able to access their community. She will be working alongside Guide Dogs to raise awareness of the problems drivers cause when parking their cars on pavements.
