Are these Britain's worst parkers?

It is common for drivers and pedestrians to become frustrated with vehicles parked up on pavements or on double-yellow lines.

One anonymous social media poster has decided to take matters into his own hands by sharing photos of drivers parked badly or illegally.

The Facebook page, called Park It Right Canterbury, Whitstable and Herne Bay posts photos of the bad parking, including where they were taken.

The creator of the page, who wishes to remain anonymous, says he set it up the page after his son was born.

"When I was pushing him around in the pram I had to walk in the road around cars that were completely blocking the pavement.

"I wondered if others also felt that this was a problem and if a bit of publicity might make people consider pedestrians more when they park."

He says he wants there to be a national ban on parking on pavements, like the one in London.

The page is one of many on Facebook that use pictures of bad parkers - including one named Heathfield, Uckfield and East Sussex bad parking.

Those on Facebook can use the pages as ways of venting their frustration at drivers in their local area, or just in general.
