11 MAY 2022
We are encouraging people to make themselves aware of the law around the use of electric scooters.
Complaints around the use of E-Scooters are increasing in the local area, there has been an increase in their popularity and we are concerned that there is a lack of understanding and awareness of how they can be used .
Its currently an offence to use an E scooter on :

The only place you can use an E-scooter is on private land, but permission of the owner or occupier must be obtained
This is because e-scooters are classified as Personal Light Electric Vehicles (PLEVs) so they are treated as motor vehicles. As such, if they are used on a road, pavement or public place they are subject to the same legal requirements as any motor vehicle.
It’s important to note:
- If you are caught using an e-scooter illegally then you could face a fine, penalty points on your driving licence or even the loss of your licence.
- If you use e-scooters dangerously or while under the influence of drink or drugs then you could be convicted of offences which could lead to a prison sentence.
- offences relating to the standard of driving or speeding also apply and police have the power to seize e-scooters if offences have been committed.

We understand that e-scooters are very tempting presents, but we would urge people to fully understand the law first. Some people are purchasing e-scooters in the mistaken belief they can legally use them on public paths and roads, this is not the case. Our focus is engaging with members of the community and making them aware of the law regarding e-scooters. Offenders who knowingly and persistently break the law will be dealt with appropriately, whereby the e-scooter will be seized and the rider reported for any offences.

We urge anyone using an e-scooter legally – i.e. on private land – to carefully consider their safety before doing so. All riders should wear a helmet (younger riders particularly) and would benefit from additional protective clothing such as knee and elbow pads to minimise injury.
