As a disabled driver who can’t walk far and definitely cannot ride a bike, it seems to me that Southampton council only want foot and bike people to enter the town.

That's all well and good if you want the town to go bankrupt very quickly, so be it.

I call upon all drivers not to visit Southampton - you have a lot of choice to shop on line, shop out of town where parking is free, and, dare I say it lots of other places like Portsmouth, Fareham, and Winchester to name just a few .

I am sorry shop owners but I will never cross your door to spend my hard earned money as Southampton council don’t want us.

I say this to car drivers: "Vote with your car and go elsewhere."
