September 30th is Make Way Day! As always, the aim of Disability Federation of Ireland is to educate and raise awareness of the needs of people with disabilities in the public spaces we all share.
Make Way Day is about one impactful coordinated and decisive day of action to improve the access of our towns and cities for everyone.
“Hey, this blocks my way!” is the message.
Obstacles include anything that the public has control over.
- Cars/Vans parked on footpaths
- Wheelie Bins on footpaths
- Kegs on footpaths
- Sandwich boards/ signs on the footpath– (check local by-laws on sandwich boards)
- Overgrown hedges
- Bikes tied to lampposts/ railings
