When does a wheel chair cross the line to be not a wheel chair, needs to be tagged, and not allowed on the sidewalk?

I know that powered wheel chairs are allowed on the side walk and road where I live.

Are there any countries with laws that explicitly cover these devices and how?

  • I think this is too broad. You've tagged three different countries, and for the US in particular, state law applies, so that's 53 different jurisdictions or so. Moreover, within a single jurisdiction, the definition might be different for different purposes (license required, legal to drive on public road, required safety features, regulation of sellers, etc, etc.) Please ask a more specific question, limited to a single jurisdiction. – Nate Eldredge Aug 12 at 21:47

    When government is acting as Big Brother, it has an obligation to keep taxpaying citizens out of harm. But if the citizen is already injured in a wheelchair... ? Does it matter or are these laws the same for everyone? – Paul Aug 12 at 22:37
