SHOP displays creeping on to pavements in Huddersfield are becoming increasingly dangerous for disabled people.
Kirklees Disability Rights Network wants traders to be more sympathetic to the needs of disabled people.
At its last meeting the group passed a resolution criticising excessive `street furniture'.
In a statement, the group said it abhorred the illegal trading taking place on public walkways, plazas and other pedestrianised areas. It impeding access for disabled people and other members of the public.
The group wants Kirklees Council to prosecute unlicensed traders.
The chairman of the group, David Quarmby said this was not a new complaint.
"It keeps cropping up at our meetings because it is a common problem. Now they are encroaching on pedestrianised areas.
"Before anyone can start trading on the street they should get a licence," added Mr Quarmby.
"The increasing trend to pedestrianised areas is in many ways a good thing, but when there are obstacles and unlicensed traders it becomes more problematic."
Mr Richard Bunney, Kirklees's highways network manager, said that when they received a complaint they looked into it.
But he said it was a matter of getting the balance right.
However, street furniture should not cause an obstruction.
