Care provider Elizabeth Finn Care, along with The Mobility Bureau, have appealed for common sense as the European Union is set to make law a reclassification Regulation, which will see the EU’s Customs Code Committee classify a mobility scooter in the same league as a Formula 1 racing car.

The move means that EU member states will have to impose a 10% import tax on the mobility scooters, a tax that many businesses will have to pass on to disabled consumers, who are among the poorest in society.
