Now here's a feel good snippet taken from my Tuesday diary.
Arose early to catch the free Council mini-bus, door-to-door to the local shopping centre, where I was able to use their free electric mobility scooter for the 2 hours visit. They are marvellous aren't they?
It was my 1st. go on one of them; like, Awesome!
No prangs and no scooter-rage!
Normally I grab a trolley for stability even if I'm only buying a loaf of bread, but not any more.
I'm thinking ahead to when (not if!) they take my driving licence away. There's a growing media campaign against older drivers; highlighted, of course, each time one mounts the kerb and finishes up in a shop.
I'll be devastated without a licence but a motorised scooter might be one answer. OAPs get financial help with taxis and public transport, but they obviously lack the spontaneity of being able to hop into the car and going where and when. Not too far, obviously, but roadside assistance is available for a modest fee from the RACV; e.g flat battery.
Now I've got to wrestle with the logistics of ownership.
Buy new; Buy 2nd- hand; Rent/Lease.
