I have read that Manchester City Council are currently seeking powers to make it illegal to park on footpaths/kerbs/verges etc. and that the council will increase surveillance on and enforce with large fines/removals. I hope that Jane will push for this for all of Greater Manchester. I have been driven at whilst on the footpath and beeped at by people wanting to park where I'm standing having a chat. I've been hit by a van reversing off a footpath that couldn't see. People in wheelchairs or with prams etc. often have to go on the road.
