The Department for Transport’s remit covers road traffic legislation which applies to the road or public place.

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has had a number of discussions with representatives of the oil sector about the provision of electric vehicle charge points at service stations and petrol forecourts. We are encouraging the private sector to invest in and operate a self-sustaining public network supported by the right policy framework. Only last week, the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Transport met with automotive industry leaders, where there was a discussion about having the right charging infrastructure in place and a number of new commitments about charging were made to make electric vehicles more convenient than ever to own. The Government’s view is that the market is often better placed to identify the right locations for chargepoints and it is essential that viable commercial models are in place to ensure continued maintenance and improvements to the network. As evidence of this, BP Chargemaster, the UK’s largest electric car charge point provider, announced last month that it will install 400 points capable of ultra-fast 150kW charging by 2021 – including 100 at 50 sites by the end of 2019.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Our mission is to put the UK at the forefront of the design, manufacture and uptake of zero emission vehicles. We are investing more than £1.5bn between 2015 and 2021 to support this. The plug-in car grant continues to support the purchase of the cleanest vehicles and will remain in place until at least 2020. Our Road to Zero Strategy confirmed that consumer incentives in some form will continue to play a role beyond 2020.</p><p> </p><p>The government recently announced company car tax rates out to 2022-23. To accelerate the shift to zero emission cars, all zero emission models will pay no company car tax in 2020-21, 1% in 2021-22 before returning to the planned 2% rate in 2022-23 – a significant tax saving for employees and employers.</p><p> </p><p>Alongside other measures in the government’s Road to Zero strategy, including support schemes for the installation of charge points, the UK government’s support package adds up to one of the most comprehensive worldwide. As part of the upcoming spending review, government will be setting out funding and other measures for future years.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Given that electric scooters, and other micromobility devices, are treated like any other motor vehicle under the Road Traffic Act, this means they are subject to laws requiring them to conform to technical standards and be used safely. This includes requirements for users to have insurance, driving licences, number plates, and helmets. At present, it is difficult for electric scooters to meet these requirements and as such they are illegal to use on a public road. Therefore, the Department has made no assessment of their prevalence. The Future of Mobility regulatory review will address the challenges of ensuring our transport infrastructure and regulation are fit for the future. This is a broad programme of work, and we expect to publish an initial consultation in autumn this year.</p><p> </p> more like this
