Height barriers 'may cause damage to vehicles'
Another motoring story from Auto Windscreens
Motorists with 4x4s and motorhomes who are keen to avoid damage to their autos may agree something needs to be done about height barriers.
The Association of British Drivers (ABD) has claimed these features are a "growing menace" to individuals with vehicles that are larger than average.
As well as preventing unwanted forms of transport from using car parks, height barriers also present a major inconvenience to people with a legitimate right to enter such areas, it said.
The group stated most motorhomes, some 4x4s and disabled driver vehicles - along with anyone whose auto has a roof rack - are finding it impossible to gain access to tourist sites, leisure facilities and shopping centres.
Spokesman Nigel Humphries commented: "One council department spends public money trying to encourage tourists to visit their area, whilst another is spending public money preventing them from parking."
The organisation pointed out if drivers are not vigilant, such barriers can cause damage to their vehicles.
