The Mobility Scooter Nation (With Videos)

Today there is close to 300,000 mobility scooters in Britain, this has increased by 230,000 in 5 years. Just think how many there will be in another 5 years?

It's not just the elderly or disabled that are jumping on the buggy brigade either, some young and healthy people are buying them because they are cheaper than a car. Soon the world could be very similar to the film Wallie with humans forgetting how to walk. That might be a little far fetched but an interesting thought.

The number of scooters owned has increased so much that the transport minister Norman Baker has commissioned officials to investigate. He published new guidelines last month.


- Anyone over the age of 14 can buy the fastest class of scooter with no requirement for a licence, training or insurance.
- Unlike cars, mobility scooters are not subject to official safety checks, and can be sold without any training being given.
- Although not classed as a motor vehicle, it is illegal in the UK to drive a mobility scooter when over the drink-drive limit. Driving a scooter while disqualified can lead to a prison sentence.

An increase to the number of mobility scooters on the roads has also resulted in an increase in YouTube videos. Here are some of the best ones I have found:
