Punish Pavement Pests

In the wake of a rollerblader causing a woman severe head injuries, Matthew Steeples demands ‘pavement pests’ – including those blessed scooters – be banned from spaces meant for pedestrians

 

‘Pavement pests’ – adults on both pavements and roads on such things as children’s pavement scooters and rollerblades and people capable of walking on ‘body snatcher’ mobility scooters – truly get my goat.

 

Having spent a considerable period of the year with my arm in a sling, I was naturally cautious as I wandered about. People with rucksacks were naturally a hazard to keep clear of, but what truly became a danger were those I mentioned above. Each and every time I was bashed into by one, I came to realise what a menace these contraptions and those that use them truly are to anyone who gets in their way.

The author, Matthew Steeples, tries out a mobility scooter with a lady who genuinely needs one; they do have their place.

 

This week, proof of the true impact of such was provided when a French-born male model, Patrick Nodanche, 28, received a suspended prison sentence of fifteen months. He caused severe head injuries to an investment expert, Jean Hu, 35, when he smashed into her at high speed on rollerblades in Haymarket, London. The consequences for Ms Hu were severe: Since the incident in October last year, she has spent eight days in hospital, has needed specialist home care and has had to abandon her six-figure job at Goldman Sachs as “her injuries make long-distance travel impossible.”

 

It is now time that the government tightened up legislation in this area. Whilst Nodanche was rightly prosecuted, nothing can currently be done about adults knocking over old ladies on pavement scooters. Whilst one could argue, the populous should just behave responsibly, the images below prove many simply don’t. It is time to push pavement pests into the gutter and it is time to remember pavements are for pedestrians.

  1. If a poor lorry driver hits one, their families will blame him. That would be wrong. These morons should wake up and smell the coffee – because for them it will soon be too late. Blood on the pavement and blood on the road.

  2. The one with a dog needs a good slap!!!!!!!!!!!! Send her Down Under and I’ll administer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whack, whack!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Eric Anderson: Good idea. And the chap who brain- damaged the pedestrian should have had that as partial punishment. With a suspended sentence, all he has to do is stay out of trouble. Making him give up time and money as well as his suspended sentence sounds fairer to me.
