Almost every week I watch people on mobility scooters, in wheelchairs and pushing prams or strollers on the roadway along Short Street in Forster.
I feel that it is only a matter of time before someone is seriously injured because they have difficulty trying to push or drive on the grassed areas where there are no footpaths.
It concerns me to see the family of a man in a heavy wheelchair (his legs are extended in front of him) pushing him along the road, particularly near our place where there is an S-bend in the road, something which some vehicles and motor bike riders accelerate though like a chicane on a racetrack.
Although there is a footpath in front of our complex that is where it begins and ends.
There are hardly any footpaths between Pipers Lane/Douglas Avenue and the route taken by so many people (via Short Street) to the medical precinct in South Street, Forster, where there is a footpath along the entire area.
Surely just one side of Short Street could have some footpaths installed for public safety.
