I had to show this story. Unfortunately, I feel very sorry for the lady in the story. In my opinion then stealing mobility scooter batteries is “scraping the bottom of the barrel”. Of course when it comes to low life. It must happen more often than I have heard about. All I can say is that it may be a good idea to keep a spare pair of mobility scooter batteries. Hence, just in case. A spare pair of batteries can also come in handy for if your scooter batteries fail. While you are on your travels . It can and does happen, so please beware.

My wife and I visit Hull in East Yorkshire for the odd weekend. We like Hull with the harbour and great shopping centre. Luckily it is only a two hour drive away so has easy access for us. So, like most cities Hull has its fair share of mobility scooter flying about the streets and shopping areas.

Just left parked up ?

Of course, Hull also has its fair share of pubs and restaurants. Being a large port the city centre pubs are well frequented by sailors from all over the world. Happily the atmosphere is always very friendly as the busy shoppers take a break for lunch or a drink or two in the pub bars. However I have noticed that Hull has many mobility scooters just parked up outside these establishments. Normally then I would not take much notice, However now that I have read many stories about users having their mobility scooter batteries stolen when parked up outside shops and pubs.

CALLOUS thieves left an arthritic woman without the use of her mobility scooter after damaging it and stealing its batteries.
