The use of e-scooters is illegal on roads and public pathways throughout the UK. You can only use them on private land.January 29, 2021 at 2:57 pm #199850
Comment from the above link/article/ (not mine!)
This whole private e scooter law, is only a greedy, malicious scam from the government so that you pay to use these GREENER vehicles. They don’t want you using your own one because then the money goes to Xiaomi, Macwheel etc, the manufacturer of the scooters and not them. Police only go by the law because they suck up to the government for their wages.
I think police have far more important and serious crimes to deal with than people who ride these, especially those who do so responsibly and considerably, such as people breaking lockdown rules and making illegal raves. THAT is putting people at risk. Do not listen to any crap on here, eventually it will have to be made legal to ride these, because there are too many around and even like here, police have admitted it.
A motorised vehicle? Please… but you’re allowing E-bikes which are twice as fast as a scooter to be legal? Yeah just keep destroying this planet and sucking up your wages
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.January 29, 2021 at 3:07 pm #199852
Yes its illegal throughout the UK, being drunk in a pub is also illegal. It’s almost as if these laws are outdated. Obviously its about money not safety.January 31, 2021 at 2:23 pm #199914
E-scooters shouldn’t be on roads unless insured. In an accident involving a scooter with a legally insured vehicle, they are not covered themselves & the onus would be on the car driver irrespective of fault, hence bumping up their premiums. Hardly fair.January 31, 2021 at 4:04 pm #199923
To follow your logic (and I’m not sure I do), the same criteria could applied to bicycles too.January 31, 2021 at 5:57 pm #199925
That is true BenjaminM & I did expect you to comment but many of these e-scooters are used by youngsters who have no fear. The majority of cyclists are responsible & use cycle paths where available or at least are aware of other road users.
By the way have you had your jab yet? Mine is next week.January 31, 2021 at 7:21 pm #199926
No jab yet and no notification either. My turn will come I’m sure. I’ll just have to continue following the rules until then and beyond.January 31, 2021 at 7:35 pm #199927
I was deciphering the long letter Betsi sent out last week I’m guessing to all local households and Phase 1 only has plans to vaccinate all over 50 and vulnerable.
No plans for the average Joe’s yet. I wonder at what point in the year Phase 2 will begin. Because surely if we hit Autumn again all the Phase 1 folk will need a new vaccination if it’s a repeat and evolving protection thing like Flu.
It’s a patiently waiting game all round I think.January 31, 2021 at 9:14 pm #199929
Matt, wait until you get the one giving you an appointment. 5 pages on both sides for the Catrin Finch Centre. Everything you need to read on the first page. Trying to read the English version isn’t easy to follow & there is an extra page in Welsh. My fault for not being able to read Welsh I guess.
My appointment is just 3 days after the person I share caring duties for received his jab at Strathmore. It was a bit of a shock when I received the letter yesterday.February 1, 2021 at 8:29 am #199935
5 pages eh – wow they certainly like their paperwork on this one. Glad you’ve both been tabled in for a jab. Looks like things are moving in the right direction.
