Yes, we had a brilliant idea to get a scooter for mom a few years ago, but we had no idea she felt unsafe on it due to the ride height. She stuck with her old 15-year-old Fino because she could touch the ground when stationary. That fino got sent to Sukhothai recently as it would be more useful up there than around here. This added a level of solitude to her daily life, which isn’t suitable for the aged Thai as they are very social people. Adding the 3-wheel scooter will give her back some mobility which should help keep the household running smoothly.
