Well, I just want to say that I have not found most of this applies to myself when I am out and about on my mobility scooter.
I have, has a whole, found that the greater majority of people are extremely friendly and helpful. When I trundling up a narrow pavement, people coming towards me, nearly always step in the road to let me past. I ALWAYS make a point of smiling and saying 'Thank you'. Never any problem in lifts anywhere, indeed I am often waved to the front, to use these these.
Yes, sometime, I am unable to pass by someone in front of me on a pavement, but this is nearly always because they do not realise I am behind them (I am reluctant to use the hooter), when they see me they always apologise.
However, my ex-hubbie was a long-time electric wheelchair user - and was so very rude. He had an expectation that EVERYBODY should just get out of his way wherever he was or what he was doing. He was a genuine hazard to other people on pavements, in shops and on the road. To the extent that our adult children all refused to go with him anywhere.
Yesterday I was sitting on my scooter in short queue to pay in a store and was waved in front of a lovely young family with small baby. I refused, with a smile, saying they should have priority over me.
Think it is a lot of 'Do as you would be done by'
