star this property answer text <p>We recognise that people want to take advantage of the opportunities electric scooters can offer. We are committed to encouraging innovation in transport as well as improving road safety, but new modes of transport must be safe and secure by design. Whilst e-scooters can be used on private property (with the landowner’s permission), in general it is currently illegal to ride them on the road. This includes on cycle lanes, or tracks, or on the pavement.</p><p> </p><p>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, and a consultation will be issued in due course.</p><p>The Strategy can be found at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/future-of-mobility-urban-strategy" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/future-of-mobility-urban-strategy</a></p>
