Electrically Assisted Trike

Electric trike
This man is able to get about easily and safely on an electrically assisted trike. It has been designed to meet the needs of disabled people, and such trikes are frequently seen in the Netherlands. You can see that whilst a relatively fast-moving vehicle like this would be a menace to pedestrians, it would be extremely vulnerable on the road. Following this man, as I did for some time, it was clear his disabilities were more than just physical. He was nervous of other people on the path, and tended to weave from side to side.
