You can get on your mobility scooter and increase the amount of independence you have. You can even use road mobility scooters to travel on the pavement at 4mph or to visit a neighbour or go into a supermarket without the need for a walker or wheelchair.

The Legal Side.
In the UK mobility scooters are widely available with government subsidy under the Motability scheme. They are legally classified by the Use of Invalid Carriages on Highways Regulations 1988 as either Class II or Class III Invalid Carriages for legal purposes. A Class II scooter must be limited to 4 mph (6.4 km/h) for use on a footway only, while a Class III scooter must be limited to 8 mph (13 km/h) for road/highway use and have an additional 4 mph limiter for footway use. In March 2010 a government consultation was assigned to determine how the law should adapt to increasing scooter use, whether higher road speeds should be allowed and on a replacement for the archaic term "invalid carriage".
Due to concerns over safety issues and problems with bringing prosecutions against irresponsible users under existing laws, the consultation also considered whether to make third party insurance mandatory, consider the introduction of compulsory training for users and discuss how to bring mobility scooter users under wider road traffic legislation.
