Written evidence submitted by Mr Robin Chiltern
- If the plans to allow e-scooters on public roads is approved has any thought been given to insurance?
- If aproval is given only to RENTAL versions presumably the renter could include mandatory cover within the fee they charge.
- Each scooter to be registered and have a readily visible ID plate
- Being aware of the misgivings expressed by the RNIB, I agree that a maximum of 10mph would be appropriate. Similarly, the inclusion of an aural on-coming warning device.
- Scooters should be restricted to urban areas and used only on the highway, not foot paths.
- Mandatory use of front and rear lights during the daytime, (I feel that all vehicles, including bikes, on the public highway should display lights at all times.)
- Only one person to be on a scooter at a time and that individual to be subject to the same rules of the road as the driver of a motor vehicle.
