Abstract: A subset $ X$ of the Euclidean plane $ {E^2}$ is said to have the triple midset property (TMP) if, for each pair of points $ x$ and $ y$ of $ X$, the perpendicular bisector of the segment joining $ x$ and $ y$ intersects $ X$ at exactly three points. In this paper it is proved that no arc or simple closed curve in $ {E^2}$ can have the TMP. In a subsequent paper these results are used to prove that no planar continuum can have the TMP.
