It’s interesting that Northern Ireland will allow e-cycles to go up to 15.5mph and still not be treated as a motor vehicles (‘E-bikes cleared for NI’ LTT 29 May). Meanwhile, mobility scooters are limited to 4mph on footways and above that they must use the roads. Mobility scooters are also banned from cycle paths.
The Government’s encouragement to local authorities to implement temporary pop-up cycle lanes as a response to Covid-19 will take away roadspace, making roads even more dangerous for mobility scooters.
When will someone in authority do something about this dangerous discrimination against the disabled?
No one seems to care.
