People operating motorized wheelchairs and medical scooters are treated in the same way as pedestrians. Therefore you must obey all the rules of the road that apply to pedestrians under the Highway Traffic Act.
A sidewalk should be the first choice for someone using a wheelchair or medical scooter. When there is no wheelchair-accessible curb, return to the sidewalk at the first available
opportunity. If there is no sidewalk available, you should:
• Travel along the left shoulder of the roadway facing oncoming traffic
• Look for a way to get onto a sidewalk safely and as soon as you can
