Cowardly scooter thieves anger me

Have your say

READING again this week that someone else has sadly had their precious mobility scooter stolen from outside their home by some cowardly thief angers me so much.

As a user of a scooter myself I understand what a devastating effect it has on a disabled or elderly person when this happens.

Do these cowardly thieves not understand that we scooter users do not use these vehicles just to joy ride around the town on a Saturday evening or do “doughnuts” in Sainsbury’s car park but that we actually rely on them to carry out simple tasks like posting a letter?

I cannot walk more than a few feet without being in constant pain from a crippling illness and without my beloved scooter I would be totally housebound. And may I add they are not just a few quid but can cost up to £5,000 or £6,000.

So you cowardly thief, when you next decide to steal yet another scooter, as I’m sure you will, just think again and realise that you are putting someone’s life at risk.
