Charter of uk.people.disability.transport

(Not Moderated)

The group is for the discussion of all aspects of transport for disabled people, including Motability operations and policies as well as individual vehicles provided or offered under the scheme. Posters may also discuss any difficulties they have encountered or share their experiences regarding other transport matters or solutions. All modes of transport for disabled people are relevant to the group including issues arising from the use of third party vehicles or public transport. Provision of wheelchairs and special mobility aids (and their use) as part of publicly accessible schemes is also a relevant topic.


Advertising is forbidden, with these exceptions:
Suppliers of goods and services relevant to disabled transport in the UK may post an invitation to visit their web site or request details. It should be of four lines or fewer and not posted more than once every 3 months. The subject line should begin "ADVERT: ", except for vacancy adverts, when it should begin "JOB: ".

Binaries & Formatting

Encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) are forbidden. Such material belongs on a web or FTP site to which a pointer may be posted. Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used where authentication is important and should be as short as possible.

Posts must be readable as plain text. HTML, RTF and similarly formatted messages are prohibited. To see how to make some common newsreaders comply with this, read <http://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>.

Warning. Anyone posting contrary to this charter may be reported to their "postmaster" and/or Service Provider.
