Hey Shane, was your mun in UK last night?

A grandmother has been sent a speeding ticket accusing her of travelling at 41mph - on a mobility scooter. Skip related content

Janice Carrick was told a roadside camera had clocked her breaking the 30mph limit on her Meyra electric scooter.

The 12-volt vehicle has a top speed of just 8mph.

At the time her scooter was in for repairs and she was at a hospital appointment almost 40 miles away.

It is thought the mix-up may have resulted from someone cloning a number plate and it is understood police are investigating.

Miss Carrick, 53, who suffers hearing and mobility problems, uses the scooter to go shopping from her home in Denaby, near Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

However, she received a fixed penalty notice from police telling her there was photographic evidence of her speeding in Otley Road, Leeds.

She told the Rotherham Advertiser: "I normally never go further than Mexborough or Conisbrough for my shopping.

"I'd need to make a few modifications to my scooter to be able to get to Leeds, let alone travel at 41mph."

West Yorkshire's Safety Casualty Reduction Partnership has re-examined the vehicle photographed.

It found the vehicle involved was not a four-wheel electric mobility scooter.


"I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend, if you have one."
- George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill.

"Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second ... if there is one."
- Winston Churchill, in response.
