Provide more elder-friendly public seating

As our society ages, let us make our environment more elder-friendly.

Let us install more benches with backs so that senior citizens can rest comfortably when they are tired.

Benches without backs are uncomfortable for the tired elderly, so, unless we want to discourage them from leaving their homes, let us add backs to the new benches.

Some areas where such seating would be much appreciated are parks, void decks, bus stops, shopping centres and any place old folk may be found.

I hope the authorities will consider this suggestion favourably.
