Good advice but I wonder how many will be caring enough to do those things.

Story in the news about a blind man and his dog being abused on an escalator because they would not move to one side to let two idiots pass

If I had a form of didsbility, the first thing I wouldn't want would be patronising. I wouldn't consider myself to have any more right than anybody else who was able-bodied.
Not everybody likes dogs. They shouldn't be forced to.
Choice is a human right.

It's called consideration, but alot of people/kids, these days don't know the meaning of it because they have been dragged up.

And there we have it. Tonker says it all.

It isn't at all patronising - it's common sense and not being selfish to cut back overhanging trees and to remove bins etc. from pavements, some streets are like assault courses especially when shops have those dreaded, trip hazard, A boards outside.

What do you do if you don't like dogs.

Blind man gets Guide Horse

If this article was printed on April 1 I wouldn't believe it, but they must be confident that a horse can guide him around the city, though I'd rather put my trust in a dog than a horse.

Consideration, that's all it is, I'll not park me car on the pavement because it will make it hard for disabled people and parents, or I'll cut the bushes then there not in anyone's way.... consideration.

Some people .....eh.

Number 3 is an impossibility in virtually all side street and many main roads. Put them further away than 2mt from the pavement and the lazy bin men will walk past and leave them.
