Parking on walkways

edited December 1969 in General
During my evening walks in downtown Funchal I frequently observe , that drivers park there cars directly on walkways, such, that people walking by have to step down on the street to pass . It looks to me, that the authorities seem to tolerate that behaviour, because I have never seen police getting active.
What is the local practice ?



  • Sometimes they do something something they don't. Woudln't know, it's quite a problem for people in wheelchairs, with baby strollers, kids... ussualy you have to go into the road to pass. I was upset with that when my grand-father was here, besides a lot of places lacking space for a wheelchair and wheelchair access, places with no pavements... the cars on the pavements were one of the big problems.
