Ridden at that should have read!

If you don't drive/ride it at full speed then I would imagine it lasts longer than if full throttle out?

Yet another of life's "don't let the fantasy rrp" cloud your judgement lessons. Nice find btw at £54.95. Charges a little quicker, 8mph is plenty fast enough. Could be a nice little present.

Max load is 70kg or about 11 stone, so don't buy if your looking for a cheap mobility scooter

Good point - had done a check beforehand and hadn't found the one at £55. That one ends up at £60 with P&P but still cheaper than my find.

Have a feeling it's gonna get cold in here!!

If the kids use this, rather than actually pushing along on a normal scooter, they'll soon exceed that weight limit

Thanks, so it cant be ridden on the pavement

Riding any of these vehicles on the pavement, is in its own right, … Riding any of these vehicles on the pavement, is in its own right, breaking the law and should be reported to your local police who will advise the young person and their parents as to its safest use.The only place any of these machines can be used is on private land with the landowner's permission.

According to the below, our kids shouldn't be riding their pushbikes on pavements also? Don't recall any kid being pulled for this?

askthe.police.uk/con…htm

It is an offence to ride a pedal cycle intentionally on a footpath that is made or set apart for the use or accommodation of foot passengers, a penalty ticket may be issued with a fine.

There may also be byelaws in place to prevent cycling on a footpath, the penalties would be contained within the byelaw which could vary from area to area.

the law about these is there to protect your children, you can see the dangers of riding one by a main road, that goes for bikes too but at least a bike could realistically have a parent pedalling alongside and also isnt likely to malfunction suddenly and shoot off course. so ignore the law or pick holes in it if you want but remember its intention.

If truth be told, I got the same groupon email this morning, thought it looked OK at first glance, and considered whether it was worth a post. Got sidetracked for a while, and then checked to see if it had been posted, saw your deal, and thought; I'm glad did get sidetracked.

Id love to agree with your interpretation as well. But equally, you could also argue its there to protect pedestrians being struck by one of these.

I guess its up to the interprtation of the officer that stops you at the end of the day, if that happens of course. I guess most wouldnt be bothered, but Im sure the jobsworth are out there too.
