SIR, - May I, through your newspaper, suggest that the elderly lady riding a mobility scooter who ran into my wife from behind in Watling Street, Radlett, on Wednesday morning last week causing her severe bruising to her leg necessitating medical attention and then, to the amazement of witnesses, sped off while waving her hand in the air and shouting something like "sorry I couldn't stop", either has lessons on the use of the machine or ceases using it before she kills someone. Possibly, if she has a conscience, she might wish to call into our shop and properly apologise.

While appreciating that they allow many elderly or partially-disabled people much-needed mobility and independence, it is amazing that these machines may be sold and used on the pavement without any instruction, insurance requirement or speed limiters. Hitting someone from behind - adult or child - could result in a fatality if the victim strikes their head on the pavement or possibly suffers a heart attack as a consequence.

LES CAZIN,

China Carousel, Watling Street, Radlett.
