    Mobility scooter safety tips

    Watch our video to get some tips for a safe and happy scooter journey.

    Driving rules

    Scooter users must obey the same rules as pedestrians.

    • Drive on the footpath or nature strip wherever possible; only use the road if there’s no other option.
    • Use pedestrian crossings or cross at areas of high visibility.
    • Don’t drink and drive.
    Handling tips

    Scooters are surprisingly comfortable and manoeuvrable.

    • Slow turns – make turns slowly and avoid sudden jerky movements.
    • Rear-view mirrors – use your rear-view mirrors often to stay aware of what’s going on around you.
    • Travel straight – travel up and down inclines as straight as possible to avoid tipping the scooter.
    • Increase visibility – display a safety flag and wear light coloured clothing.
    • Slow down – reduce speed when travelling in congested areas, and watch out for vehicles exiting driveways.
    • Avoid driving a scooter at night – use lights and reflectors if you must drive at night.
    Plan your trip

    Plan your route in advance.

    • Potential hazards – think about any potential hazards like rough terrain, busy crossings or roadworks.
    • Consider other factors – check the weather and be sure you’re feeling okay before you head off.
