This is one of those horror stories that we see in a bad dream. In my opinion, mobility drivers are getting very clever and competent drivers. As expected, there are some people who will take the extra risks, as I suspect in this case. Therefore, we have all seen mobility scooter drivers taking risks. Speeding down hills or crossing busy road junctions. I suspect that there will be a time when scooter drivers may have to take some sort of test.
There is also an added risk. Scooter drivers can now use millions of miles of special routes and cycle lanes. Here in Halifax Yorkshire, we have many miles of cycle tracks that were made from a disused railway track.As expected, this is extended to all the UK. Scooter drivers could face extra risks, so please be careful.
