Decision Maker Response

Sadiq Khan’s response

Jun 7, 2019 — Dear Petitioner

Thank you for the petition submitted on the website about legalising electric scooters and other portable e-vehicles.

E-scooters cannot lawfully be used on public highways in the UK. Altering this position is likely to require changes to primary legislation and any proposal to change the legal status of these vehicles should be considered with the safety of riders and other road users as the first priority. This is a matter for the Government and Parliament to consider.

Yours sincerely,

Public Liaison Unit
