Scooters are a real menace
9:58am Wednesday 9th July 2014 in Letters
I HAVE read many letters about cyclists on pavements, but am I the only pedestrian who has been almost ‘mown down’ more than once by primary school children on their way to school on their lethal scooters?
‘Mummy’ is usually a few hundred yards behind – sometimes shouting ‘wait at the main road’ while checking her mobile phone.
The little darlings scoot along like bats out of Hell, oblivious to others in their path.
Can I sue the parents if I get an injury?
These metal scooters are lethal!
Pavements are for pedestrians.
Make them walk, as we had to do, and teach the whole family some manners please.
