Petition to ban e-scooters from footpaths

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:36 pm on 29 October 2019

A coalition of pedestrians and disability groups have come together, calling for e-scooters to be banned from footpaths.

A petition was launched by the Footpaths4Feet Coalition, who say allowing motorised vehicles on the footpaths will result in more injuries and fewer people walking. 

Dr Chris Teo-Sherrell is the spokesperson for the coalition and is here to explain the problem.
