Mobility Scooters: Speed Cut

Have you ever been nearly run-down by someone on a ‘gopher’ [A.K.A. mobility scooter].

Some people are a bit heavy with their feet … leading to new plans to reduce their speed limit further.

Currently gophers are restricted to 10km/h … but Member for Murray-Darling John Williams wants that cut to 6km/h.

Maybe they could install speed limiters in them … just like they do for trucks!?
