Police stop man driving mobility scooter on autoroute
Valais police responded to several calls of a man riding his mobility scooter on the A9 autoroute. The 84-year-old was travelling along the hard shoulder at 20 kph last Monday.
The police caught up with him easily and escorted him off the road at the Bex exit.
They reminded the man that scooters are not suitable for the autoroute – which is made clear in the manufacturer’s handbook.
