Road rules, footpath rules e scooters and other zippy devices.

Iola from Awapuni

Before PNCC Councillors decide that e scooters and other zippy ways of riding on the footpath or the enlarged cycle ways are permitted, can we have a discussion about road and footpath safety.? Who is at fault if I am exiting my driveway, and a cyclist, e scooter or other on the footpath, crashes into me? Who is at fault if I am backing out of my driveway and a cyclist, e scooter on the footpath crashes in to me? Does the cyclist or e scooter rider, have insurance for any damage he/she may do to my car? Do cyclists and e scooter riders have householders insurance, which in some cases will compensate me for any damage the cyclist or e scooter rider does to my car? Do mobility scooters also have insurance to cover any damages? I do know that some householders insurance does cover damage to others done by children or dogs.
I think it is all very well to have these new ideas, if everyone has the assurances that safety responsibilty, is important and insurance is also important. Already we have a number of helmetless adults riding bikes on the footpaths and no controls or sanctions that can be enforced by the Council. What risk management plans have Council officers prepared regarding this matter.

Faye from Takaro

Looking for someone to give my gardens a good once-over. They are not too bad but very weedy (I am not a gardener but seem to be able to grow weeds very well!) Happy for someone too come and have a look and discuss which plants could be added to make it 'pretty'. I am unable to do gardening myself as I have crushed vertebrae but would like my garden to look nice. Don't mind who does it (landscaper, retired person, student etc) as long as they can do a decent job at a reasonable price and can do it within the next week or two. Leave a message on 021 295 0712 and I will get back to you after the weekend. Thank you very much.
