Store right over scooter concern
ALL your readers will feel some sorrow for Mrs Proctor at being confined to a wheelchair or scooter with her disability.
However, for any of us who have had to dodge these road going vehicles in stores we also understand the concern of the staff in banning them.
They are not designed for driving round stores or supermarkets and most of these stores supply wheelchairs for their disabled customers.
Many times I have had to step into the road as they bear down on me.

I have had one run over my foot and I dodge them as they pop them into reverse without any thought of other customers.
They are, in fact, nothing short of a nuisance and in themselves are a health and safety hazard.
I wonder what response Pete Woodhall, Wilkinsons' spokesman would give if I or other customers tried to claim against their company for injury from a scooter whilst visiting their store.
Electric wheelchairs get bigger and heavier and are a blight on our pavements which are not designed for them.
And why they are exempt from the law that prevents cyclist on pavements, I really fail to understand.
To all electric go-cart drivers, please have some thought for the pedestrians walking around whom in many cases are older than you and use walking sticks.
One clip from your wheelchair and they are in trouble.
