    There is too little focus on shared vehicles and on safety for pedestrians. There is too much focus on bicycles in Richmond and too little on the problems with motorized vehicles which create hazards on trails in Richmond. This will continue to get worse over time. There needs to be more focus on varied local restaurants and services at major hubs across Richmond.

    City of Richmond reply: Thank you for your comment. The City of Richmond enacted Bylaw regulations in July 2021 to establish a 15 km/h speed limit for motor-assisted e-bikes and e-scooters on shared pathways.  Signage is being installed to advise users of the speed limit including on the Railway Greenway and the Imperial Landing pathways in Steveston. To further raise awareness of the new speed limit, communication through the City’s social media and website is on-going.  Staff continue to monitor this situation and should it persist, will liaise with Richmond RCMP regarding enforcement.  Fully motorized vehicles (except wheelchairs) and e-scooters are not permitted on dyke trails.
