    Not motering exactly but doesn't fit anywhere else, pedestrian drop kerbs

    Hi

    I have fibromyalgia and the pain I get in my legs means I am unable to walk more then pottering round my house.
    I use an electric wheelchair for getting around out of the house and this includes taking my daughter to nursery.

    At the moment my daughter walks on the pavement and I have to go down on the road with my other daughter on my lap because there is no drop kerbs on the pavement

    Does anyone know if I can complain to the council and hopefully get them to put drop kerbs in (3 would be needed 2 each end of a junction and at the end of the pavement to enter the nurserys carpark

    The lack of drop kerbs prevent access to any disabled user in the area using a childrens play park (council owned) completely too

    Contact your County Council's Highways Department and put in your requests for dropped kerbs, where and reasons. As a rule they oblige.

    Other than what Beau says I can't be of any further help.

    To contact my county council highways has always worked for me. Up to present I have had 5 dropped kerbs put in and another 3 are on the way.
