Everyone has the right to move freely along the street.
Unfortunately, there are still many barriers that make
this difficult for people who are blind or partially
sighted. The Streets Ahead campaign aims to tackle
some of the most frequent barriers to accessible streets.
Parking on Pavements
Poorly parked vehicles which block some or all of the
pavement cause problems for many pedestrians. It can force
people who are blind or partially sighted, parents with
pushchairs, wheelchair users, and many others, to walk on
the road and into the path of oncoming traffic.
Help us campaign for a nationwide law on this issue.
97% of those who are blind or partially sighted encounter
problems with street clutter, such as shop advertising boards
or pavement café furniture. We’re calling for clearer high
streets which are more attractive and accessible for all
Help us improve your local high street for everyone.
Shared surfaces are designed to create a single space which
is shared by pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. These areas
frequently have no pedestrian crossings, no pavements, and
no kerb. Shared surfaces can pose a threat to the safety of
people with sight loss.
We’re campaigning to ensure that the needs of blind or
partially sighted pedestrians are put first.
