I walk my dogs past this tree every day and I have often thought that if a car mounted the pavement there it would be horrific for the pedestrian and the driver/passengers. The trouble with this tree is that it is not set back far enough from the road. I feel this tree should be felled to allow more room between pedestrians and the road.

Removing the tree would not have stopped the car from mounting the pavement.
