The link opens a BBC article on a campaign to make mobility scooter riders have training… and also that only disabled people use them (who else uses them!?):
Hmmm… I’m in two minds about this.
On the one hand it comes across as yet another attack on the disabled.
On the other, I know that a few mobility scooter users are not very responsible. There used to be a man in my neighbourhood who went charging around at speed and shouting at anyone who was in his way.
I consider myself a very responsible rider… and get a kick out of riding with skill.
What do you think?
Another attack on the disabled or a good idea?
