Dear Residents, Residents are experiencing problems with pavements and paths being blocked by abandoned e-bikes and scooters. These are particularly hazardous for the elderly, infirm, wheelchair users and parents with prams.
This is what Dr Farrelly from the Wapping Group Practice had to say -
"Dr Farrelly senior partner at Wapping Group Practice recognises that the hire bicycles that are abandoned on Wapping streets pose a hazard to our patients. Especially, to our elderly and vulnerable groups, wheelchair users and parents with prams or young children, who are forced into the road to avoid them. I am equally concerned for any visually impaired patients for whom these unexpected obstacles create a major road safety issue.”
If you witness an e-bike or e-scooter blocking a pavement then please report to -
