Going for a stress-free walk is something many take for granted. But for blind and partially sighted people, the reality is very different.
Fast and silent e-scooters are putting blind and partially sighted people at risk. Cars parked on pavements force people to step into the road, risking injury from potential oncoming traffic. Chairs and tables outside restaurants, A-Boards and overhanging bushes are all obstacles to avoid.
Visually Impaired people should be able to enjoy our nation’s public spaces independently and safely. Our streets should be accessible to everyone.
