Do mobility scooters need dashboard cams?

An increasing number of car drivers rely on dash cams and reversing cameras, and now the same tech is making its way into the world of mobility scooters.

As a provider of mobility scooter insurance, we have customers who’ve faced the threat of prosecution based on little more than hearsay. Of course, third party liability cover can protect against such claims, but some people are turning to mobility scooter dash cams nonetheless.

If you decide a mobility scooter cam is for you, which one should you buy? A small and inexpensive mini camera caught our eye this week. At less than £30 including a memory card, it’s a fraction of the price of other cameras. It’s not pitched as a mobility scooter camera, but we think being able to clip it to clothing makes it ideal.

Mobility scooter reversing cameras

Rear-view reversing cameras provide a wide-angle picture of what’s going on behind your scooter, and some include a parking sensor that beeps when you’re approaching objects.

They can be retro-fitted and are particularly useful for people with restricted neck mobility.
