@joslow.. yes you are right in a test it showed that the driver couldnt see a child in their rear view mirror or rear window until they were stood 7 deep... very bad.. but i find those that drive them dont care about other kids but their own. no offence but i see them up at the school in mornings and they think they can park where ever they like and do what they like as they are "big monster kid killers" as my hubby calls them
as for concreting gardens.. we had to half ours few years back as private lane and not allowed to park on it.. so have to provide for 3 cars each house.
and if you want to concrete you front garden with anything but gravel you have to get planning permission...as my neighbour found out to his cost early this year.. a B & B and he wanted to concrete the whole garden for parking guests.. he did it and then made to dig it allup and apply for planning.. he was only allowed to concrete half and the other had to be done in drain free material.. so as not to flood the lane... which is good a sit floods already when wehave rain.. so his drive would have made it worse.. and doing it in all that rain proved thier point.. and the dug out foundations flooded like a swimming pool
