They get them via the second market and use them as a cheap alternative to a car.

What law says you must not drive a mobility scooter unless you are disabled.
Do you have to have either a blue badge or a medical certificate to officially use one?
I have a blue badge. To get this I had to prove my disability and get a certificate signed by my GP. Does this mean that I can legally use a scooter?
Can you be arrested for using a scooter if you do not have either?
Another of those 'laws' that has a big question mark after it like some ancient laws that still exist.
It is still illegal to carry a plank, ladder, wheel or pole along a pavement.
it is still illegal in London to shake a mat or rug outside before 8AM.
And the strangest law of all. It is illegal to die in Parliament.
