Ninety in the fast lane: mobility scooter takes to the highway

Most nonagenarians are content to take things slowly. Not Stanley Murphy, who despite being 90 has had an unexpected taste of life in the fast lane.

Motorists hurtling along the A27, a busy major road that runs through Sussex, were surprised to discover the pensioner chugging along the carriageway in his eight mph mobility scooter. Mr Murphy, from Shoreham, near Hove, was also somewhat startled.

His trip had begun sedately enough, when he popped out to buy a newspaper yesterday lunchtime. One wrong turn later and he was suddenly travelling westbound along the A27 towards the Shoreham flyover with cars and lorries racing past him at 70mph.

@hamburger,
Mr. H, I'm betting he's on the freeway illegally. There are signs posted that you must be able to do a minimum of 30/35 (?) KPH to drive on it. I don't believe that these scooters can go that fast.

@Reyn,
reyn :

perhaps he carried one of those signs that people driving a renault put on their backwindows in the 60's : "please don't honk - i'm pedalling as fast as i can " .
(a neighbour had a renault with that sign) .
i believe the police said that he didn't have a license "tag" .
in florida there are some places were a golf cart can be driven on "designated" roadways ???
