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.
