Pavements are for pedestrians!

Posted on

See below definitions.

So who are responsible for enforcing this clearly explained standard by way of the increasing allowance of wheeled vehicles such as e-scooters and bicycles  to be annexing pavements to the disadvantage and danger of the pedestrians these pavements are clearly there for the use of and not for  those travelling on wheels; and why and those failing to deliver the necessary control and enforcement not themselves being brought to book for their failure to deliver such management in protection of pedestrian wellbeing and rights? We see no enforcement but do see increasing use by cyclists and now e-scooter riders on the pavements. A disgrace.
