Pensioner rides mobility scooter on M74

mobility scooter on M74 motorway
An elderly pensioner has been apprehended by police after riding his mobility scooter on a motorway in Scotland.

A number of members of the public contacted police gravely concerned for the safety of a 92-year-old after he was witnessed travelling on the M74 in Lanarkshire. The pensioner was pulled over close to junction six near Motherwell and Hamilton. He had been driving along a new lane of the motorway which was not yet open to traffic but he was just metres away from fast-moving cars and lorries, according to reports. Police said the man was “taken home by officers”.

This is the second similar incident of a mobility scooter being driven on a dual carriageway and motorway in as many days and both reported on this blog.
