Pavements Are for People
I would like to see byelaws introduced making it a civil offence to either 1) park a vehicle or 2) ride a bicycle (or skateboard, etc) on any pavement or walkway (unless appropriately dedicated).
Why the contribution is important
Pavements are for people to walk on (or use wheelchairs, etc). They are often obstructed by pavement parking, and pedestrians run a constant risk of being skittled out of the way, or injured, by cyclists. It might be a challenge to enforce, but clear signeage, and an appropriate level of fines would go a long way to making our pavements safer, and encourage more people to walk on them
