Scoot­ers on and de­bris off the path

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

HAV­ING heard through the me­dia that there have been eight deaths re­cently in­volv­ing mo­bil­ity scoot­ers, I am not too sur­prised.

One el­derly gen­tle­man who trav­els daily on his, be­tween Clovelly Way (off Kings Road, South Har­row) to Rayn­ers Lane, is a tragedy wait­ing to hap­pen! His ve­hi­cle is rather rick­ety, and not sup­posed to be on the road. When I my­self am on foot, I tell him to ‘get on the path’. He smiles, and when he thinks I can’t see him, he’s back in the road, ob­struct­ing buses.

There are a lot of reck­less driv­ers about, who would run him down, and not even bother to stop!

I hope one of his fam­ily might see this and warn them. He’s been do­ing it for years. He prob­a­bly drove a car, in the past, and thinks of it as his car!

A sec­ond point – sev­eral months ago, the coun­cil or­dered a num­ber of trees to be lopped. For the most part, cut down to stumps. Now the Tree Sur­geons have been back, and all that re­mains are splin­ters, and saw­dust! Very detri­men­tal to the well-be­ing of all crea­tures great and small, who do not have footwear to pro­tect them! The coun­cil have a large hose for suck­ing up leaves (I have seen it) so by the same to­ken, please spare a thought for the an­i­mals, and clear all wood shav­ings up! It is also another from of lit­ter­ing!
