Here’s a quickie.
Earlier today I was somewhere in PJ, wheeling alongside the who’s who in the disabled community to protest against, get this, a group of able-bodied residents who had conveniently objected the local council’s decision to create a more disabled-friendly environment around the township.
For the record, the PBT had reconstructed a stretch of pavement and made it functional for everyone, and that includes not just the disabled but as well the able-bodied themselves.
Tell me if I’m missing out something here but when this project works in every single resident’s favour, I fail to see why the need for some quarters to bark about unnecessarily.
Like it or not, this is what equal rights is all about. When all this while most pavements shut wheelchair-users from accessing on it, the new universally-designed footpath caters to both sets of users.
So what’s the fuss really about? They get to still set their foot on the pavement and equally so are our wheels.
Not that the pavement was designed to make life a living mayhem for the jaywalkers, no.
So until that actually happen I sincerely suggest these people to quit being a selfish bastard and shut their pie-hole for once.
And with that said, I’ll be off again.
