Written evidence submitted by Mr Graham Knight

 

I am not against the use of e scooters but think they must be regulated and treated as a small m/cycle or moped.

The rider should wear helmet.

The scooter should be registered and have 'number plates'.

The rider should be licensed as a m/cyclist.

The rider should be insured as a m/cyclist.

They should not be allowed on pavements.

Consider using in cycle lanes.

When used on roads should comply with the laws.

Strict speed limits. As time goes by speeds will increase.

Very useful for muggers.

 

Could be a way to reduce pollution when there are more EVs on the road.

Electric cycles should be under the same rules.
