Letters: Sidewalks should be for people

Sooke resident thinks scooters and machines should respect pedestrians

Pedestrian: A person who goes by foot. They include baby buggies, children with small wagons or carts, invalids in wheelchairs and other non-motorized users.

At present, there is a very dangerous mix of people and machines trying to use our sidewalks.

Sidewalks should be  the one safe place for people afoot. Especially for women, children and elderly.

We need clarity and legislation, preferably by an all party government committee to sort out this dangerous mix of people and machines.
