Participants at a scooter forum on Tuesday listened to guest speakers and expressed their concerns about scooter safety to Victoria Coun. Chris Coleman; Chris Foord, chair of the Capital Regional District's Traffic Safety Commission, and Todd Linski from Medichair.

The highlight of the afternoon was the scooter parade, in which riders made it a point to show city employees, developers and councillors the obstacles and trouble spots they deal with on a daily basis.
