Training and security Overall.
283 owners had received training or practice on utilizing a mobility scooter safely. 200 had actually gotten training from the merchant they bought the movement scooter from, and 109 got training from another organisation, such as a local charity.

Alternatively, it may be that pavements and kerbs provide more opportunities for accidents owing to poor upkeep and the existence of pedestrians.
