Cy­cle, scooter safety

The Press - - Opinion -

A safety sug­ges­tion: with cy­cles and scoot­ers shar­ing foot­paths, per­haps they could be equipped with horns or bells? These could then be sounded to warn pedes­tri­ans when ap­proach­ing them from be­hind.

This will pre­vent mo­men­tary shock to el­derly peo­ple and also any col­li­sion should those on foot sud­denly move into the path of these other wise silent riders who whizz past at high speed.
