A Sainsbury’s delivery driver decided to park his van here, at the entrance to Whitworth Lane on Moseley Road. Whitworth Lane is closed to motor traffic but is well used by cyclists and pedestrians. The van was parked illegally on double yellow lines and on the pavement, blocking access to a side road and covering a dropped kerb.
Those familiar with the area may find it puzzling that someone living here in Owen’s Park halls of residence would want to get groceries delivered by Sainsbury’s. I feel that the level of contempt displayed by the driver for pedestrians, cyclists, pram users and wheelchair users reflects badly on J Sainsbury’s as a whole. I have emailed Sainsbury’s about this incident and I will post an update if and when they reply.
