E-Scooters legal on UK roads – instead of cars
Riders can now drive e-scooters legally on roads in the UK. This is to ease public transport pressure during the coronavirus crisis. The Department for Transport says the e-scooters will be hired from firms and a drivers licence is required. Reporter Alex Iszatt examines the rules that apply to riding on the road.
Transport Committee of MPs recommend E-scooters be legalised on roads but riding on pavements should be prohibited. Currently, privately-owned e-scooters are banned to use in the UK anywhere except on private land.
