Many people get around on the footpath in many ways other than on foot.
If you use scooters, skateboards or skates on the footpath, you are still classified as a pedestrian. These users must take extra care to check for vehicles coming in or out of driveways, just as they would when walking.
Be courteous whenever you’re travelling faster than those around you. When passing others on the footpath, leave enough room that you don’t scare them or put them in danger.
