Mobility scooter laws urged

David Davies, the executive director of the parliamentary advisory council for transport safety, has said laws governing the use of mobility scooters might need to be introduced to take account of the increased number of scooters, e-bikes and “non-conventional” vehicles using Britain’s roads. Government figures show mobility scooters were involved in 222 accidents in 2015, eight of which were fatal. It was up from 209 a year earlier, 156 in 2013 and 84 in 2012.
