Just spent two days people watching at the Dayton Hamvention. Lots of people riding scooters and here’s my observations. Most scooter people are men and most are morbidly obese and not old enough to be called elderly. There are not many skinny scooter riders and of those who are, many are wearing oxygen devices and suffer from breathing problems. I observed several times a younger woman who suffered from multiple deforming birth defects and was confined to a regular manual wheel chair. She physical rolled herself around Hara Arena for two straight days and was obviously in great physical condition. Maybe SS and Medicare needs to consider not providing scooters except in the most extreme situations.
