Everyday shopping
Grocery stores with tight turns
Joining your family on walks
Keeping up with the grandkids
Collapsing and transporting

Three wheels makes the scooter very nimble
Three wheel scooters tend to be the most affordable
Heavier individuals may need stability of 4-Wheels when entering/exiting
