There are no plans to commission an inquiry into to the number of deaths and serious injuries involving mobility vehicles. The Department for Transport is aware that the number of mobility scooters is on the increase and therefore it is procuring a survey to help assess the number of mobility scooter users and the extent to which their use may have injured people. Further, the Department is expecting to publish a public consultation on options for change.
The Government's aim will continue to be to balance the mobility needs of scooter users with the safety needs of pedestrians and other road users.
The information requested cannot be identified separately. Reported personal injury accidents involving mobility scooters are recorded as part of the ‘other motor vehicle’ category.
