Letter: Curb on the kerb brings new perils

Sir: Dr Mayer Hillman (letter, 5 September) has nearly reached the height of anti-car absurdity. I am much more of a pedestrian and cyclist than a motorist; the idea of "paving intersections to the same level and with the same materials as the adjacent pavement" fills me with horror.

What do blind people do, except those with highly intelligent dogs, when there is no distinction between pavement and road? Or children, who are taught that the pavement is a safe place and the kerb is where you take special care? Has Dr Hillman ever ridden on a bicycle - or in an ambulance - over a series of humps?
