Safe and Accessible Pathways - Invitation
As summer arrives and pathways are again bustling with Calgarians enjoying the opportunity to get outside, the safety of everyone using the pathways is critical. With many different wheeled devices travelling quickly, interactions with pedestrians can be threatening, especially where disabilities exist that may not be evident to others. Disabilities range from vision challenges, deaf and hard of hearing to users with earbuds restricting their hearing.
