Living Streets welcomes the focus on safety and accessibility on our footpaths in the report back from the Transport and Infrastructure Select Committee. The Committee report on the Footpaths4Feet petition to have e-scooters and other devices kept off footpaths has been released today (see https://www.parliament.nz/en/pb/sc/reports/document/SCR_107995/petition-ofchris-teo-sherrell-for-footpaths4feet-keep).
Have you had or witnessed an incident or near miss in Auckland involving an e-micromobility vehicle (e-scooter, e-bike, e-skateboard, hoverboard, or Segway)? You may either have been the rider or another party, and we would like to learn what happened. Note that unpowered vehicles are excluded from this survey (so no push scooters nor traditional human powered bicycles).
Discussion at the Carterton District Council Walking and Cycling Advisory Group has inspired a Wairarapa Walking Festival. Our district has excellent rural and urban walks. People loved walking during lockdown, and we want to encourage more people to walk more often.
