How do scooters work?

Mobility scooters are one of the first consumer electric vehicles to be introduced since the electric cars of the early 20th Century. But times have changed since those days and mobility scooters are now at the forefront of advanced electric vehicle technology.

Are scooters safe?

Electric mobility scooters are one of the safest means of transport in the country. They are even safer than walking on the footpath! They’re easy to operate, travel at a modest speed and are low to the ground.

Accident rates are low, injury and death rates extremely low, and in NSW in 2011 more people died falling off chairs than through using a mobility scooter!

Research by Scooters Australia has shown that it’s far safer using a mobility scooter than driving a car, travelling as a passenger in a car, or walking on the footpath.
