“Pavements are for pedestrians, for those in wheelchairs and for parents who carry car seats,” Pere Navarro, the government’s Director General of Traffic, told a meeting of the Association of People with Spinal Injuries. 

He said that car parking spaces should be reduced to make way for on road parking for scooters, bicycles and motorcycles. 

“There are nine million people over 65 who walk a lot and want the sidewalks to be free of obstructions,” he added.
