For starters, downtown Hamilton has a city funded senior's building (First Place) at King and Wellington with around 500 units - so not surprising to see more mobility devices on the sidewalk there. For those who have obtained funding for a scooter, it would come through the Assistive Devices Program (provincial funding) which pays 75 percent of the cost of a mobility device once an OT has assessed need for one and signed off. Difficult to say how many people are gaming the system, I doubt it is the majority.
