The Quingo team are delighted to announce that the Quingo Flyte, our self-loading, portable mobility scooter, has just won the best innovation award at the REVA Expo in Ghent, Belgium.
At Quingo, we understand that accessibility is vitally important, which is why we encourage Quingo scooter users to visit ‘scooter’ friendly locations. We also want to hear about other locations or attractions that you’ve visited that offer a good mobility scooter experience.
The Quingo team recently wrote about a BBC exposé that found many companies and services in the UK which were not doing enough to make themselves accessible for those less able. We were glad to see that since the report many of these companies had taken action to improve their accessibility.
Today the Quingo Scooters team want to talk about the ways you could benefit from the Government’s Blue Badge Scheme if you need to transport your Quingo by car.
What is the Blue Badge? Where can I get one?
The Blue Badge scheme provides a national range of parking concessions for people with limited mobility who have difficulty using public transport.
Holders of a Blue Badge will be able to park their vehicle closer to a destination, either as a driver or a passenger.
In the second part of a two-part series on the Highway Code and mobility scooters, Quingo take a closer look at what the Highway Code says about driving on the road.
In our last blogpost we talked about the difference between Class 2 and Class 3 vehicles as well as driving your Quingo on pavements.
Mobility scooters and the Highway Code: Driving on roads
When driving on the road the Highway Code states that Class 3 vehicles should drive in the direction of the traffic, whilst Class 2 users should always use the pavement in situations where it’s possible.
