Hertfordshire Road Safety Partnership want to bring to your attention their concerns over the illegal use of privately owned e-scooters.
E-Scooters are readily available to purchase and sales are expected to increase over the festive period. However, it is currently against the law to ride a privately owned e-scooter on a public road, cycle path or pavement. Private e-scooters can only be legally used on private land (with the landowners permission).
Illegal use of e-scooters can lead to a police warning or seizure of the e-scooter. E-scooter use on pavements, cycle paths or roads can lead to serious injury for pedestrians, scooter riders and other road users.
