Jade Bevan started this petition to UK Parliament and

We are one of the last countries to catch up with the times due to a law written hundreds of years ago.

What is an E-Scooter ? Not a replica of a moped but a good old fashioned stand up battery operated scooter with an electric motor. Designed with a deck in the centre on which the rider stands. 

-E-scooters have mechanical breaks and should be allowed in cycle paths.

-E-scooters are better for the environment.

-Why are E-bikes allowed ? Because they have peddles! (that's just silly)

I don’t want to ride an ass to work but an E-Scooter would do the trick nicely.

1835 Highway Act:     If any person shall wilfully ride upon any footpath or causeway by the side of any road made or set apart for the use or accommodation of foot passengers; or shall wilfully lead or drive any horse, ass, sheep, mule, swine, or cattle or carriage of any description, or any truck or sledge, upon any such footpath or causeway; or shall tether any horse, ass, mule, swine, or cattle, on any highway, so as to suffer or permit the tethered animal to be thereon; every person so offending in any of the cases aforesaid shall for each and every such offence forfeit and pay a [fine].”

and the fines are huge!

Please share and let's try and get heard!
