That's the way to do it

RICK JACKSON: Girl power rules – at the age of two

Have your say

Shoppers in Gosport’s High Street are used to dodging cyclists who continue to break the rules by peddling their bikes through the pedestrianised zone.

But now there’s a new menace in town – the electric mobility scooter.

I actually had to jump out of the way of one of these four-wheeled beasts when it came charging towards me at around 10mph.

And on market day the high number of scooters competing with walkers makes it feel like a dual carriageway.

The size of some of these scooters is outrageous.

So until those who use mobility scooters can prove they are responsible riders, it’s time to get cracking on a set of rules and restrictions.

It really is the only way to keep everyone out of harm’s way.
