MOBILITY SCOOTERS UNDER THE MICROSCOPE

Mobility Scooters

A Senate inquiry will consider whether mobility scooters need greater regulation to ensure the users and pedestrians are safer.

The Senate Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee will conduct the inquiry following a motion moved by the Nationals Senator for New South Wales John Williams.
