A letter to the Wellington City Council’s Infrastructure Committee
I am a pedestrian. I use footpaths for walking and occasionally for running. When people park their cars park on the footpath, in such a way as to prevent me from passing, I am forced to walk or run on the road. If I am on my own, this is an annoying inconvenience and creates a minor risk to my personal safety. This inconvenience is increased on rubbish collection days when recycling bins, wheelie bins and rubbish bags are also on the footpath.
