Halfords also says that the trend of legalisation is immediately clear; the majority of developed countries are embracing e-scooters as an effective commuter tool and introducing legislation to facilitate their safe use.
Halfords has been advocating for a clear framework and regulation that makes e-scooters safe to ride on the UK’s roads and have been calling for action on this over the last year. The cycling retailer believes that any new regulations should deliver safer roads and ensure that e-scooter road users behave responsibly and with care and attention.
Speaking about the electric scooter rules Matt Banks, Halfords E-mobility expert said: “From the increasing e-scooter demand we’re seeing in the UK; it seems like the public may not be aware of the legality of e-scooters.
This interactive map will give people an insight into how legislations vary from one country to another.
“Along with e-bikes, the safe use of e-scooters has the potential to revolutionise the way we travel and with new legislation, they potentially could offer a greener and safer alternative to those who wish to avoid public transport at this time.”
