They have rules in Archbold, and apparently, you better now break them.
Archbold police ticketed a disabled man for driving his mobility scooter on a sidewalk. Now, that man, 53 year old Mark Miller, says he plans to fight it.
Miller, who without his scooter is stuck at home, says he didn’t have an accident, and he wasn’t speeding. He can barely walk, and he needs the doctor-prescribed scooter to get around.
Last week, Miller took his new scooter out for a ride. That’s when Archbold police pulled him over on a sidewalk and wrote him up. According to police, a scooter like Miller’s can’t be used on sidewalks or in the streets of Archbold.
Miller disagrees, saying anywhere a pedestrian could go, a mobility device for the handicapped can go. He plans to fight the ticket. He’s due in court today to take up the fight.
