WE ASKED for your photos of bad parking in Bournemouth, Poole and beyond... and you really delivered.

We've whittled down 33 images of the worst parking in Dorset, from seven vans lining a narrow single-carriageway street in Bournemouth town centre to the parents and carers who park on double yellow lines outside our schools.

Some of the men and women who own the cars in the photographs block pavements to pedestrians.

One silver Mercedes parked in Iford Lane forced a wheelchair user into the main road.

A grandfather and his grandson riding along a cycle path in Upton also found their way blocked by cars.

As it is, there is no national ban against either on-street parking or pavement parking. The only exception to this is in London, where you wouldn't be allowed to leave your vehicle on a pavement.

However, it is an offence to drive onto the pavement – with the intention to park or not.

Bournemouth Echo:

Because this is a criminal offence, as opposed to the vast majority of civil parking offences, it is enforceable by the police, not councils.

It's possible that a ban on pavement parking could be introduced in the future.

Pavement parking

A ban on pavement parking could be introduced. But we want to see your pictures of some of the worst instances near where you live in Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and the rest of Dorset.
