  • Motorist taking daughter out for a drive came across mobility scooter in the road
  • The small vehicle was attempting to carry a large double mattress on the back
  • The footage was recorded in the Boothville area of Northampton on October 22

Hilarious footage has captured the moment a driver got stuck behind a mobility scooter carrying a double mattress.

The slow-moving vehicle was spotted pottering along a suburban road with the wide load precariously balanced in the driver’s seat. 

The footage was recorded in the Boothville area of Northampton.

The motorist was taking his daughter out for a drive when they came across the bizarre sight up ahead.

In the video, the scooter, which has a maximum  speed of 8mph, even swerves between speed bumps to avoid tipping over.

The unnamed driver posted a video of the encounter on social media on October 22. 

‘I was taking my daughter out and we ended up following this chap driving down a road carrying a mattress on his scooter,’ he said.

The clip has been viewed over 77,000 times, with many people praising the scooter driver’s determination.

Catherine P joked: ‘At least they’ve got their hazards on, lol. Definitely determined!’ 

Robert Kustos commented: ‘A good gust of wind from behind and he’ll be doing 40 mph.’

Donna Leanne Gwin added: ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way.’

This is not the first time an overloaded mobility scooter has been filmed on Britain’s roads.

In another hilarious clip, a mobility scooter user was spotted driving along with three wooden panels crammed into the back of the buggy. 

Tyrone Mullan, 30, captured the unusual sight as his friend drove to a supermarket in Bristol in May 2020.

The hilarious clip was taken by Tyrone Mullan, 30, on his phone after spotting the unusual sight in Bristol, Avon, last Sunday

The clip sees the man drive on main roads with the three 6ft by 6ft fence panels strapped to the chair of the mobility scooter – and at one point he uses his indicator to turn left. 

‘I didn’t even recognise what it was at first because all I could see were the moving fence panels in the road and I was trying to work out what was going on,’ said Tyrone.

‘Then I saw the guy on the mobility scooter and I was crying with laughter.

‘I thought he must live on one of these roads but he was driving along two main roads going the same way as me for about five minutes before he turned off.

‘That’s what set me off the most, seeing his indicator go off as though he was actually driving a car.
