Nicky Jeffrey Wilson said: “Brilliant saves her legs getting tired peddling”.

Andy Whitehall continued: “Haha brilliant! The guy talking has been blown away by that lady”.

David said today: “I’ve never seen that before, I thought no way she is waiting on a scooter at a set of traffic lights.

“I just grabbed my phone and started filming”.

Electric scooters are not generally road legal as the government requires scooter owners to register the bikes with the DVLA.

However to pass the DVLA’s requirements a scooter must have three wheels and have brakes and lights.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said today the incident had not been reported to them and that they could not comment on whether the scooter’s use was illegal.

David added: “I think she is a danger to everyone else using the road.

“If she hits an obstacle on the road she could have endangered herself and other.

“And if there was a car coming the opposite direction and we had to swerve we could have knocked her off

“It is totally dangerous in my opinion”.
