As a near octogenerain with my wife wheelchair user I suggest East Lindsey District Council adopt the practise of imposing an official medical certificate
and £50 annual licence excise duty fee on all motorised battery operated 'Jolly-trolley' scooters. Also, that owners be compelled to take out minimum third party insurance cover against injury or damage. They are a menace on the road and nuisance on the pavement. Frankly, a fair proportion of the users don't really need them being just too idle to walk. Evident by the large number left outside shops jamming the pavement while the owners are inside browsing. The tax would encourage more people to walk, help keep fit and combat obesity. There are even double-header tandem scooters now with couples seemingly forming club groups dodging in and out while 'tanking' up and down Lumley Road, Skegness like demented teenagers with a care for no-one. It really does take the biscuit! Hands-up all those agreeing.
