In front of you is a class 3 powered vehicle (powered wheelchair) driven by a disabled person. These vehicles have a maximum speed of

A 8 mph (12 km/h)

These vehicles are battery powered and very vulnerable due to their slow speed, small size and low height. Some are designed for pavement and road use and have a maximum speed of 8 mph (12 km/h). Others are for pavement use only and are restricted to 4 mph (6 km/h). Take extra care and be patient if you are following one. Allow plenty of room when overtaking and do not go past unless you can do so safely.

Powered wheelchairs are an invaluable form of mobility for disabled persons, allowing them to move around independently and with greater ease than if they had to rely on a traditional wheelchair. However, these vehicles have several limitations that drivers should take into account when sharing the road with them.

Firstly, powered wheelchairs are battery-powered and therefore very vulnerable due to their slow speed and small size. Depending on the type of vehicle being used by a particular user, maximum speeds can range from 4 mph (6 km/h) for pavement use only up to 8 mph (12 km/h) for road use. As such, it is important that other drivers allow plenty of room when overtaking or passing one in order to ensure safety both for themselves as well as those using the powered wheelchair.

Furthermore, since these vehicles tend to be lower than conventional cars, it is also important that extra care be taken while driving near or behind one. Do not go past unless you can do so safely without compromising anyone’s safety in any way. This means slowing down significantly before attempting to overtake another driver who may be operating a powered wheelchair instead of taking unnecessary risks which could prove dangerous in certain scenarios. By following this advice, we will all help create safe roads where everyone feels welcomed!
