SIR, - As I was walking home last Friday via St Nicholas Church, Harpenden, towards the cul-de-sac that borders the church grounds, I noticed a 4X4 driver turning round at the bottom and then move about 50 metres up the "wrong way" before stopping.

Despite there being ample space to park on the road, the driver, as if trained to do it from birth, mounted the pavement about halfway across the pathway ahead of me, apparently to drop off her passenger.

The implication made by Carol Hedges (Herts Advertiser letters, February 19) suggested that our town should be likened to a third-world Eastern bloc state - Harpendenistan - owing to the poor state of the local environment e.g. potholes, litter; dog mess etc.

My experience described above, however, suggests that in spite of the credit crunch, Harpenden is moving even further to the right.

Park Hill, Harpenden.
