Scooter Smart – Cardiff

Do you want to be more confident travelling on your Mobility Scooter?

A pilot awareness scheme about mobility scooter safety was launched by Cardiff Council’s Road Safety Team, in conjunction with The Wales Mobility and Driving Assessment Centre on Friday 9th March 2012

It’s the first scooter safety course to be set up in Wales and the aim of the Scooter Safe seminar is to advise people on safety issues relating to the safe use of mobility scooters and to assist people on how to use their mobility scooter, together with advice on the law and the Highway Code.

The seminar consists of a classroom theory session followed by a practical training session at the Road Safety Centre at Maindy.

The practical session, which was filmed by the BBC and featured on their ‘Today Programme’, followed the progress of three scooter owners, who put their dexterity skills to the test on a specially designed manoeuvrability course at the Road Safety Centre.
