Pensioner surprised at being accused of doing 42mph on his mobility scooter

A pensioner was sent a speeding ticket by police, who accused him of travelling at 42mph on his mobility scooter. James Roberts was sent a notice of intended prosecution from North Wales Police despite the fact his mode of travel has a maximum speed of 8mph.



According to police the 74-year-old's vehicle was caught travelling at 42mph on the 30mph A5151 London Road in Trelawnyd, Flintshire on November 12. Despite the fact the grandfather-of-one from Abergele has been laid up at home for six weeks having undergone triple heart surgery. Mr Roberts said: “When I opened the letter, I thought it was a joke but I soon found out that it wasn’t.

“I’ve barely been out of the house these last six weeks, never mind going to Trelawnyd at that time of night. My scooter has a registration number but it doesn’t have number plates on it so I have no idea what’s happened here.” Mr Roberts got the battery-operated scooter 12 months ago when problems with his heart led to angina and left him unable to walk short distances.



GoSafe, the organisation which issues speeding tickets on behalf of North Wales Police said the blunder was down to an incorrect number entered into the system. A spokesman said: “This issue appears to have been caused by an incorrect digit being submitted when the offence was processed. As soon as the issue was brought to our attention it was immediately rectified. The paperwork had been cancelled earlier today. We have issued a written apology to the gentleman. We apologise for any distress caused.”
