Paths and roads: Time to come up with some cracking answers

One of the mild irritations that come with my job is the fairly constant trickle of questions I get asking what motorists think about something.

It’s as if ‘motorists’ are a breed apart, cocooned in their cars, peering out at a hostile world through their toughened glass windscreens.

And yet we are none of us ‘motorists’ 24/7. Many of us have been known to use other transport modes from time to time such as trains, buses and bicycles. In fact, the keenest motorist and car collector I know routinely cycles to work.

But, the one thing we all have in common as well as driving is that we are users of the footway as well as the carriageway, be that generally because we walk to and from our cars as pedestrians or because we need to use a wheelchair or mobility scooter to get make or complete our journeys.
