Pavement mobility scooters are great for short trips out and about, whether youíre off to the shops, running a few errands or visiting friends. With a maximum speed of 4mph, a pavement mobility scooter will get you from A to B quickly, safely and comfortably.
This class of mobility scooter suits those who donít want a large scooter for on-road travel, but do want a few extra features. Pavement scooters often have comfortable, padded captainís seats, with flip-up armrests and a swivel design that helps with awkward transfers on and off the scooter. Pavement scooters cannot travel on roads, but some models are fitted with suspension systems to reduce the force of impact as you travel over rough and uneven paths. While they do offer more features than portable mobility scooters, pavement scooters are still very easy to use. With lower speeds than a road mobility scooter and compact, narrow designs, they do very well in busy areas like supermarkets and high streets. Pavement mobility scooters are easy to manoeuvre, too, with many offering a delta tiller bar for comfortable control. D-shaped delta tiller bars are useful for those with limited dexterity in the hands and fingers, reduced grip strength, and a lack of upper body strength. Compared to portable mobility scooters, pavement scooters often have larger batteries offering increased travel distances of up to 20 miles. Pavement scooters can only be driven on pavements and footpaths.
