Tell that to the thousands of people in London using them for their daily commute.

They will remain illegal in the UK for a long time to come as the government wants to keep you in your oil burner so they can tax you to death, the motorist is an easy cash cow, from 80% fuel tax, conjestion charges, fines and road tax etc.

If you are terrified of driving you shouldn't be on the road. The scariest thing on the road is a nervous driver.
Speaking as somebody with no interest in using a scooter:

People have been happily breaking the law on bikes tearing down footpaths for years. They won't legalise scooters if the law technically won't even let my young daughter cycle on a footpath.

People who have an interest in using these scooters should STFU about legalising them and just sensibility use them on footpaths not drawing attention to themselves.

That's how most road fearing cyclists have got away with it for so long.

I'm not an anarchist or anything but the law bends, if you break it up to and not past the point where people are willing to enforce it you find the is a lot you can do and you'll consistently get away with it. (that's not a encouragement.)

I don't understand why people want to raise the profile of something like this when they seemingly already resigned themselves to breaking the law.

It's like they are almost saying: "I'm breaking the law but I am trying to retrospectively do something about it"

Doubt they will get legalised thought as there is no money in it for the UK government, notice how quick are government is to take on EU laws that they can tax the UK public on usually in the name of the environment, but when something like electric scooters that could really help cut conjestion and lower pollution they are not interested.

Why? If someone hits a pedestrian on an email scooter they will be lucky to grouse there ankle, if you got someone in your 1 ton metal box then a good chance you could kill them.

Sadly I'm only learning to drive to transport my 89 year old grandma around, and I think it might be a bit of a push to ride tandem together on scooters xD
The Highways Act of 1835 is preventing Tech Startups and Global Business specialising in PLEV's (Personal Light Electronic Vehicle) from trading in the UK. It will also increase capacity of our cities by getting people off public transport and having fewer cars on the road.

The purpose of this partition is to ask the government to change the law so that PLEV's (Electronic Scooters)can be ridden in public areas. Currently they are banned from both Pavements and Roads. PLEV's are a cost effective environmentally friendly emission free way of getting around a city. PLEV's also need a classification as a vehicle type as a part of this in the same way as Electronic Bikes are classified

These scooters would be a good idea if used sensibly, as this one can do 24 kmh and take 120kg they are potentially lethal.
I can see need for sensible legislation. Ie. Not on pavement, some sort of third party insurance.

erm...what about cyclists?

If the government thought they would get away with taxing the cyclist they would.
Used the Lime scooters recently on holiday and they were good fun. Shame we don’t have that facility legally in the UK yet - to be fair the Government is busy trying to arrange for us to splinter away from our European cousins so this is likely on the back burner like pretty much everything else.

So for now we’ll have to accept the only legal, German imported, scooter:

On a serious note though, 24km/hr top speed and range of 25km is considerably less than the Commercial scooters like Lime. Pretty sure the one I used quoted a range of about 40km and it may have already been used. Top speed was around 30mph too.

Likely a non issue for short commute trips but not practical for my commute. Forgetting the legality for a moment 😜

They are, I like them as personal transport for people especially those who can't cycle but what world are they on thinking that they can make them legal on footpaths?

If push bikes are not allowed on foot paths why would the law permit an electrically powered 2 wheeled vehicle. It's the firearms equivalent of banning hand guns but allowing sub machine guns.

Out of curiosity are you waiting for them to become legal on footpaths before you get one?

If you are I'd emplore you to just buy one and use it. No officer is likely to pursue you blowing a whistle.

It's an hourable pursuit and I can appreciate the independence if would give people. However after talks with a family friend who helps finalise draft legislation for various sections of the government this doesn't stand a chance.

It's just too much of a hot potato and if it did through you can guarantee a petition would be up to allow cycling on footpaths too and then the accidents would start.

Reports in the paper of youths and adults on scooters and bikes knocking people over.

Personally I think the legislative excerise of making them footpath legal is too much of a headache and they may aswell exist outside of the law. If the users of them are sensible they'll likely be left alone while using them on footpaths.

The people using them in London are mainly riding them on cycle paths and roads, I don't think they want them legalised for footpath use.
People can use mobility scooters on pavements and in supermarkets, those things can be dangerous and even more so when the user can’t control it properly, so why not allow these ?

I think you're mostly right there.

Morally speaking it is a great thing, law is supposed to follow morals, however to quantify this into legislation is a mega minefield..
The amount of safety this has to put as it is not as simple as a bike, actually, we have issues with bikes on legislation now anyway, mot/insurance etc..
With electromechanical devices there are failure points and modes which a user may not be able to control at the moment of time, so it would need; prevention of failures (service/mot), passive protection (bumpers etc), active protection (sensors? Active braking?), etc etc, for it to deem it safe for all public unfortunately...

I would also agree on if you feel you need one, just go do it and don't wait for legislation to happen. However I don't agree that the po po won't nick you.
I am very sure we are all human but the police in general doesnt get surrounded in good environments and if you catch them on a bad day doing 'illegal' things they will make it hard for you simply because they can. I suppose its mildly cynical mindset..
