I totally agree with Margaret Jupp’s comments in your September 1 issue.
I live on the Salterton Road and recently almost got knocked over as my wife and I walked out on to the pavement. A young mother and her two children were cycling toward us, at quite a speed, and almost ran straight into us.

I dread to think what might have happened if I had been leaving my driveway by car directly onto the path.
Cycling on non-cycle paths is against the law, as is clearly stated in all Highway Code books, and should be adhered to.
