National Disability Authority Background Briefing Paper Regulation of powered wheelchairs and scooters on Irish roads

September 2015

The National Disability Authority drafted this briefing paper in order to set out a case to the Road Safety Authority for updating legislation to take account of the changes in wheelchair technology. These changes have given people, who would have previously been unable to use a manual wheelchair, the ability to make short journeys. The paper also reflects the concerns of wheelchair-users in relation to where they are allowed to travel under current legislation.
