People on footpaths deserve a fair go

People on footpaths deserve the same consideration as people using mobility car parks, says walking advocacy group Living Streets Aotearoa.

Fines for those illegally using mobility car parks are set to rise to $150, while the fine for parking on a footpath remains at $40.

Living Streets Aotearoa President, Celia Wade-Brown says, "Why do we care more about a person with disabilities if they drive than if they are on the footpath?"
