Doncaster Council Seizes Supercharged Mobility Scooter, A mobility scooter converted to be driven by a supercharged petrol engine has been seized by council officers in South Yorkshire.

Officials at Doncaster Council said the scooter, normally used by people with mobility problems, had been causing a nuisance in the area.

The vehicle had been ridden at speeds of up to 60mph in field scaring wild deer and annoying residents.

The 24-year-old rider of the machine was stopped and the vehicle seized.

Councillor Cynthia Ransome, who is responsible for Communities on Doncaster Council, said the machine was a “feat of engineering”.

She said: “Whilst it may look like a lot of fun to ride, this type of noisy vehicle annoys residents immensely and terrifies local wildlife and walkers.
