Social distancing mobility scooter

Safe... ish.
  [vote for,

A conventional mobility scooter equipped with a Martin-Baker "zero-zero" ejector seat.

On approaching within two metres of a human not on the system's "safe list", the bang seat is fired, hurling the occupant skyward* with great force, thus protecting them from undesirable proximity.

*overhead structures permitting.

       Back when I first got here, you were doing exactly this to cats.

       We still are. Ths is just another logical step.

       Yes, and now the feral cats are overrunning the place, because you keep ejecting them to safety.   

       Start doing this to humans as well, and, well, we won't be held responsible for the result...
