Terror on four wheels

IT IS a busy road at the best of times but one person on four wheels caught the attention of passers-by as he drove along Wallace St.

The motorist wasn't in the usual vehicle as he travelled the highway - he was driving a mobility scooter and travelling no more than 40kmh in the inside lane.

Warwick Police Acting Senior Sergeant Darren Tamblyn said all mobility scooters must be registered if their drivers use the road.

"Police would definitely recommend they don't drive them down the middle of the main highways and to use footpaths where possible," he said.

"On footpaths, they should drive with due consideration to other pedestrians."
