Electric scooters are green and have no impact on the environment. Why should electric bicycles be allowed on public roads and paths?! It's time for change and this needs addressing as I have taken myself out of a motor car and onto an electric scooter. I've made the change to help the environment and the powers at be want to punish me and the rest of the like minded public because we are trying to do our bit for the world. The rules need changing so we can freely use our scooters to commute to and from work.
Why is this important?
It is important that we change the law on these scooters as they are 100% electric and readily available for people like myself who have 10 miles to get to work. I am not stuck in traffic wasting fuel and polluting the air. I am helping by using my scooter rather than my car. If electric bicycles are allowed on canal paths and highways then electric scooters have every right especially when my scooter is governed to 15 mph and electric bicycles travel so much faster than that especially when pedaling aswell.
All this is common sense and someone in power needs to take the lead on this and do the right thing. It's not rocket science and I will continue doing my bit for the environment. I am a car enthusiast through and through but commuting this way is the way forward!!! The UK Government needs to step up!!!
