Non-Accessible Sidewalks are From Hell

Getting along a footpath isn’t always easy especially when some people act either illegally, or without thought for others. Make Way Day in Ireland is creating awareness of the common footpath obstructions that people with disability and pram pushers face every day. On Make Way Day volunteers put “Make Way Day” stickers on the obstacles in their path of travel. Thisbrings attention to the issues for the offender as well as other footpath users. See the link for the examples and a video of obstacles that people have to deal with. There is also a Twitter feed for this.
