Select Committee hearing of the petition to rid footpaths of eScooters
Living Streets and representatives of other organisations belonging to the Footpaths4feet coalition spoke with the Transport and Infrastructure Select Committee on Thursday 25th June at 9.40am about the petition that we presented to Parliament last December. The petition asked Parliament to keep footpaths as safe places for pedestrians by passing a law prohibiting e-scooters and the like from them.

I just got this response to my email asking for time extension etc for Accessible Streets.
What I read in this letter is that disabled pedestrians will be adversely impacted but we don't care. We put consultation documents out in accessible formats (a Government standard approach you will know), we are going to do a disability assessment later, and anyway 15km hour on a footpath is an improvement.
