10th of June 2014, Pedestrian Lublin agreement, established on the 28th of May 2014, organized a press conference in form of a street event that exposed the problem of drivers not respecting the rule of parking cars on sidewalks, a rule that obligates to provide a minimum of 1,5m passage for pedestrians along walls. The place for the event was precisely considered, chosing Hipoteczna Street due to the location of a specialist clinic. The street is frequently attended by elderly, parents with children but still the cars are being parked diagonally instead of in parallel to the road.
