Not the right way to get around in Delta

Mobility scooters do not require registration, insurance or a licence in B.C.

People using motorized wheelchairs and mobility scooters are classified the same as a pedestrian and the devices can be used on sidewalks and crosswalks.

ICBC says those in mobility scooters and powered wheelchairs should only ride where it's safe, following the same rules and guidelines that apply to pedestrians when it comes to using the road.
