The popularity of online shopping is creating chaos on city streets. The increasing number of online deliveries means that hundreds more trucks are causing traffic jams on city streets. This is also increasing pollution. Hundreds more delivery drivers are trying to deliver parcels on time. They are fighting for parking spaces. Many have to park illegally, which adds to the gridlock for other road users. This problem is set to get worse.

Parcel deliveries increased by almost 50 per cent recently. They could increase by up to 28% a year over the next three years. Cities in Europe have taken tough measures. They have barred deliveries when roads are busiest. London is thinking about using buses to deliver parcels. Some areas of London are getting tough with food delivery motorbikes. Food delivery companies in one London area must now get permission to operate.
