The SNP leader appeared in high spirits as she took a ride on a Pure Electric scooter and spoke with locals in the town of Troon, in South Ayrshire, Scotland, while campaigning with the SNP candidate Siobhian Brown today.
The scenes came as opinion polls revealed the First Minister was on course to win another majority at the Holyrood election on Thursday.
However the latest predictions come amid warnings from Tories that the SNP leader could drive Scotland's economy 'off the edge of a cliff' after the Scottish leader confirmed on Sunday that she wanted to hold a new referendum on leaving the UK.
