Submission made to Select Committee in support of petition 20 May 2020
This week we sent a submission to the transport and Infrastructure Select Committee in support of the petition on keeping e-scooters etc off footpaths that we presented to Tracey Martin in December. Now the Committee will ask the Ministry of Transport Agency to respond and may then ask us to appear at the Committee to answer questions or elaborate on points we've made or respond to comments made by the Ministry/Agency. Not sure when this will be.
On a closely related note, we also have just sent in a big submission on the Accessible Streets Package which is proposing to allow anyone of any age ride bikes, e-bikes, e-scooters and many other types of low-powered transport devices on the footpath. Obviously we opposed those proposals.
