Hi
 
Why does everybody associate wheelchair users  with the above act.
 
Now, what if I were partially sighted and I could not read the sign on the  
bridge. FACT. The bridge owner would have to provide some other method  of 
telling me I was going to hit my head on the wall, either by electronic  
sensors 
warning me or applying a barrier of sponge to stop me banging my  head.
 
I must remind you all that the disability discrimination act includes  people 
with type 1 diabetes, persons on zimmer frames and not forgetting the  blind, 
not just wheelchair users. The act clearly states "Make adjustments"  for 
these unfortunate persons. Now, either go ahead and remove these trees  OR 
wait 
until approached by the appropriate authorities.
Bob
