Legalise the use of Electric Scooters on UK Roads

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Electric scooters otherwise known as escooters are currently illegal to use on the roads and pavements in the United Kingdom.

The majority of European countries permit the use of electric scooters, including Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland. But laws in the United Kingdom do not allow for them to be used on pavements and roads - the only place they can currently be ridden is private land.

Furthermore if a user is caught using an escooter in public place, law enforcement has the option to present a £300 fixed-penalty notice and six points on the users driving licence.

Electric scooters only use a small amount of electricity and don’t emit any harmful emissions. This type of transportation is better for the air quality in our cities. The use of Electric scooters has been proven to drastically reduce air emissions.

We require 10,000 signatures to get a response from the government. After 100,000 signatures, this petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.
