Scooter Safety Campaign
Making scooter safety the top of the political agenda to force change has been a difficulty for many in the industry over the past few years. Recare certainly puts the ongoing fight for the scooter safety campaign at the top of its agenda and may well be edging close in getting the issues in front of the decision-makers that matter. Following in David Cameron’s footsteps, MP for Witney, Robert Courts recently visited Recare in Oxfordshire to focus on making a plan to arrange a local training programme for clients. Giving background on the issue, Recare details how previous attempts to address scooter safety have occurred throughout the mobility and rehabilitation industry alongside many other company representatives to no avail. The company does however also commend fellow dealerships who have been proactive and held scooter safety days for their local areas, often kindly supported by various manufacturers. In recognising the good work that has been done, Recare says its purpose is to maintain an active voice for this campaign moving forward.
