Disabled drivers are being unfairly disadvantaged by ‘confusion’ surrounding a bollard in the centre of Clevedon, according to a shop owner.

The bollard in Station Road stops drivers parking or using it as a through road, but the owner of one of the retail units in the street says it stops disabled people from accessing the stores.

Bryan Dickinson, owner of Better Mobility, said: “The bollard at the start of Station Road is a restriction for people with limited mobility to gain access to the retailers.

“There seems to be some confusion caused by the lack of information.

“To make Station Road 
even safer and avoid confusion 
a sign explaining how the post should be used and another sign saying ‘Pedestrian Priority’, 5mph speed limit and camera sign should be put up and this should make it safer and clearer for all.”
