Pave­ments are too bumpy for scoot­ers

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

A cou­ple of weeks ago there was a let­ter in your pa­per say­ing that elec­tric scoot­ers should not be on the road.

I am dis­abled and need an elec­tric scooter. The big prob­lem is the pave­ments. Many have had ve­hi­cles parked on them and caus­ing dam­age. But gen­er­ally all pave­ments are not level or a smooth ride. In my case. The bump­ing and rat­tling in­creases my back pain.

So I am left us­ing the road which is much smoother and the cy­cle lanes which are also a bet­ter ride.

If I am forced to only use the un­even pave­ments I will be­come more house­bound.
