Petition Launched In Support

of Compulsory Scooter Insurance





A government petition has been launched as part of a campaign to make comprehensive insurance compulsory for Britain's mobility scooter users. There are now 300,000 mobility scooters in the UK, up from 70,000 only five years ago, a significant rise which has brought with it new issues.

Thefts and vandalism of scooters are increasingly common occurrences, as are collisions and accidents. The team - the website that launched the campaign - feel that this growth in scooter numbers is a positive development, as long as it is appropriately managed;

"The rise in scooter ownership figures is great news, as it means that more and more people are experiencing the life-changing benefits that these machines can bring," said Jason Tate, Help My Mobility's managing director.

"However, as numbers grow, it is important for the government to recognise the changing landscape of the mobility equipment industry. We've heard stories of people being left housebound following vandalism or theft of a scooter, or even of people being forced to sell their home because of legal costs after a collision."

"These tragic consequences are so easily avoided," he continued. "The introduction of compulsory mobility scooter insurance would put an end to situations like these."
