Senator Williams said he had been contacted by others once he raised his initial concerns, including a woman injured in similar circumstances.
"She was walking down the street in Ballina and got hit from behind by a mobility scooter: multiple fractures to both legs, four months in
"That is only one incident, there will be more of these."
Senator Williams said the push for further scrutiny was not about outlawing mobility scooters.

Senator Williams has previously secured support from his Nationals colleagues for a non-binding motion at the party's national conference this year to limit the speed of the scooters to 6
