152600Photo #152600On E-Scooters:
The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution.
Greenpeace agree with this idea.
For Towns 'streets and roads', make one Pavement for Pedestrians, (Painted Green), and the opposite Pavement would be for Bicycles and little Electric Scooters, (Paint Red or Blue). Parents won't get there car out if they know there child can ride to School safely’,( and Adults to work ), cutting Pollution and Congestion. ‘No injuries’, so no Ambulances or Hospitals needed and no problem parking around Schools.
This Solution does not apply to High Streets and yes more Zebra Crossings will be needed to be installed on busier Roads, making those Roads, ‘Semi Pedestrianized’. Some Pavements will have to be Green and Blue, but most are wide enough, with Pedestrians able to cross the Road to a complete Green Pavement via the new Zebra Crossings. Pedestrians safety, E-Scooter Safety ‘must’ come first, ahead of the ‘Car’.
The Government are about to allow E-Scooters on to our Roads, so this needs to be implemented as soon as possible, because children will be injured and killed if we don’t do this straight away.
The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution.
I have had a great agreeable response; please ask your friends and public for their opinion.
