Call for Evidence

e-scooters: submission of written evidence

 The Committee is calling for written evidence on:

  • whether the legislation for e-scooters is up to date and appropriate;
  • to what extent e-scooters have positive benefits, for instance relating to congestion and promoting more sustainable forms of transport;
  • where in the urban environment e-scooters could be used (e.g. road, pavement, cycle lanes), and how this could impact on other road users and pedestrians, including people who have visual impairments or use mobility aids;
  • whether there should be advice or compulsory requirements to use specific safety equipment when using an e-scooter;
  • whether there should be safety and environmental regulation for the build of e-scooters, and what this might entail; and
  • the experience of other countries where e-scooters are legal on the roads


This call for written evidence has now closed.
