LETTER: There are already laws against pavement parking - we don't need new ones

I can not understand the article ‘Calls for laws to stop parking on pavements’ (The Press, October 29).

The Highway Act 1835 Section 72 and Road Traffic Act Section 34, states: “You MUST NOT drive on or over a pavement, footpath or bridleway except to gain lawful access to property”.

Why is this not enforced?
