If you have limited mobility, mobility scooters can be great to way to maintain your independence and lifestyle. It is however necessary to have comparable skills and be just as safety conscious as you would in any other vehicle.
While mobility scooters are popular and can be easily purchased in most small towns and cities, it’s important that new users are given helpful information, tips and basic advice by the retailer.
You can find some very useful information at the Waka Kotahi (New Zealand Transport Agency) website about scooters and mobility devices. It also provides information about other types of small electric vehicles coming onto the market that haven’t yet been classified or that are going through the approval process.
