Mobility scooter safety

Mobility scooters are a great way to help you live an independent life, however they must be used safely:

  • Before using your scooter, make sure you know how all the controls work
  • Do not overload your scooter when out shopping, this could cause it to tip over
  • Do not drive your scooter on the road unless it is a class three vehicle
  • Pedestrians have right of way on the pavement
  • Make sure you keep your mobility scooter well maintained
  • Keep your scooter battery charged and in good condition
  • Always be aware of pedestrians around you and drive safely
  • Insuring your mobility scooter is a good idea for security and safety
