Some councils in the UK are using the coronavirus crisis as an excuse to make life more difficult for motorists. See here for details. As you can see from the article the shopkeepers are also suffering from these attacks on the motorist, as the motorists are simply not going into these towns and are shopping elsewhere. Shopkeepers don’t have a vote in council elections unless they also live in the same district as the shop, however a lot of people who work in shops do and are unlikely to vote for councillors who destroy their jobs with grand schemes.
Already some councils have been forced to backtrack according to this report. It seems they have so little foresight that they are unable to see such obvious problems with their schemes.
