Every couple of days I go to the village shop on my mobility scooter to get milk which is basically an excuse to get out of the house and see someone other than my cat. The road, as one would expect, is narrow as all we have is the shop, 2 pubs and a post office; plus at my end of the village there is the "narrows" which only allows one vehicle at a time to go through and priority is given to those going into the village from my way. In the main area of the village there is parking along one side of the road. The narrows has always been a bit of a pinch point but with the rise of tourists down here I feel like I have been dodging death whenever I go out. Why is it cars are quite happy to wait for horses and cyclists but think that it is OK to bully their way past mobility scooters; mine is registered and insured unlike horses and bikes so I have a right to be on the road, especially as the pavement is not wide enough to accommodate me. There can be no excuse that I cannot be seen as my scooter is the largest of its type and is yellow and black, I also have a flag flying from the back to increase the height and visibility, added to that one cannot accuse me of being small!
I have had to fit a dashcam to it so I have evidence .... just in case!
