TO DRIVE on the road or not to drive on the road?
Rose City motorised scooter drivers are faced with this dilemma daily and do not always have a choice.
Scooter driver and Regency Park resident Ross Hockley said he tried to stay on the footpath for as much of his journey to town as possible.
"Because some of the gutters are at a bad angle for driving up I have no choice but to go on the road if I want to get into town," he said.
Concerned relative Allison Hockley said her father-in-law was aware he should drive on the footpath but sometimes he could not.
"He can navigate pedestrian crossings but it isn't always easy and near Walker and Dragon Sts the gutters are too steep to drive up," Mrs Hockley said.
Warwick Police acting Snr Sgt Shane Reid said motorised scooter drivers must comply with Queensland road rules.
"They are to act as a pedestrian and wherever possible they must use the footpath or nature strip at all times," he said.
"If they are unsuitable they must drive as close as possible to the side of the road in the same direction of traffic in the most direct route."
