I was just wondering if anyone knew what the council’s obligation is to provide dropped curbs for disabled people to cross roads.
We have just moved to a bungalow (which is great) and I like nothing better than to take my dog out for a walk with my scooter. However, I’m getting really angry about the detours I’ve got to make to cross roads at a suitable place so I can get up the curb. I’ve gone as far as printing off a map and marking where there are dropped curbs and where there aren’t any. I’m going to write to the council to complain.
Even using those provided for people’s driveways isn’t a solution. They are either too steep or still not flush with the road which means I have to bump up it (at best a couple of inches) which isn’t good for me or the scooter
They can get it right as in a few random places they are flush and have the bobbled paving stones to help blind people. I don’t expect them to put in the 30 or so that need doing within 10 minutes ride from our home but a few at strategic places would be a start!
Anyone got any thought?
