Hauraki District Council HDC…No riding on the FootPath’s…

An up-date from Hauraki District Council HDC 

Wheel Hazard On Footpaths In Paeroa Town Centre

A wheel problem

There are plenty of places to ride push bikes, skateboards and scooters in Paeroa – on the footpaths in the town centre isn’t one of them. Recent reports of near misses between pedestrians and riders during community events like market days highlight the common sense behind Council’s resolution to prohibit the riding of anything other than a wheelchair or mobility scooter on the footpaths in the town’s main street. Throw State Highway 2 into the mix and you’ve got a wheel recipe for disaster.

No-go areas clearly marked
  
To avoid any confusion around which wheels are welcome, and where, footpaths markings clearly showing no-go areas will be repainted over the coming weeks. In the meantime, please respect pedestrians by dismounting, or skirting the town centre altogether, on your way to the skate-park, cycle trail, school or footy practice.

No cycling, no skateboarding, no scooting on footpaths in Paeroa town centre
