Since opening in 1985 TGA has always focused on the safety of its mobility scooter customers. Today it provides a wide range of services, advice and products that can help you drive safely when out and about.
As the evenings are now darker, there are lots of ways to remain more visible to other road users when driving around on your scooter. With the help of TGA and its award-winning range of products, you can make sure your independence is not compromised this autumn and winter.
Combining the best in style and safety, the new white Minimo and Minimo Plus are now available and both offer a folding solution that is easy to lift. Their clean and crisp colour is easy for pedestrians and car drivers to spot so whichever model you choose, you can have peace of mind when driving along the pavement or crossing the road. Both are lightweight and fold in seconds - ideal for storing in the car boot or in a compact space at home. The new white Minimo Plus now comes with a removable seat so it is even easier to lift into a car boot. It also has many new exciting safety features including an optional automatic safety sensor that reduces speed around corners and high-visibility LED lights. These lights are really bright - perfect for safer travel and greater visibility.
As part of TGA's current safe driving campaign called 'Scoot And Be Seen' , every new white Minimo Plus ordered before 1st Dec 2015 comes with a FREE high visibility bag. This quality bag can be mounted over the back of the seat so it acts as a reflective area that is clearly visible in limited light. It can be quickly detached and used as a normal backpack - handy for shopping or days out.

TGA's safe driving campaign doesn't stop there. This nationwide scooter specialist also offers handy tips and advice regarding safe driving on its website at: www.tgamobility.co.uk/help-and-advice. Here you'll find information under the 'Scoot And Be Seen' headlines that will really help you get the most out of your scooter. Topics include 'rules of the road', how to keep your scooter in tip-top shape and guidance regarding driver proficiency training - all helping to keep you and other highway users safe.
It is particularly important to keep your scooter clean during the winter so there is no dirt on lights and wheels are free from mud. A clean headlight mean you are far more visible to other road users and with washed wheels, braking and steering is more responsive. Also making sure your scooter is serviced annually will mean its reliability and performance are not compromised.
Looking after your batteries and keeping their charge topped up is essential, especially during cold winter months. If you are planning not to use your scooter for weeks, then the batteries still need charging otherwise your scooter might not work when you need it. There are lots of other handy tips available from TGA in their Battery Care & Maintenance Guide along with their Safe Mobility Scooter Driving Guide - call for your free leaflets today!
