answer text <p>Electric scooters are illegal to use on public roads in the UK. The Future of Mobility Urban Strategy, published on 19 March 2019, includes a Regulatory Review to address the challenges of ensuring our transport infrastructure and regulation are fit for the future. One strand of this will look at options for enabling micromobility devices, which include electric scooters. The review will consider a wide range of issues, including international experience of the deployment of electric scooters to ascertain what lessons may be learned and applied to the UK. New modes of transport must be safe and secure by design, and the impact on other road users, particularly pedestrians, and appropriate speed will also be considered within the review.</p><p> </p> more like this
