Refreshed 12th Jun (Posted 9th Jun)Edited by:"Mrswitch"
With topcashback theoretical saving of £11, making total outlay £348

Sorry to the op who posted the Halford deal earlier, but I knew this was cheaper, and so thought people would rather save the £30 and receive the same service, this is also delivered free of charge by DPD, probably the best delivery company in the UK in my opinion

I police the streets of London and wouldn't stop anyone on one of these purely because I'd rather be doing something productive like trying to stop actual criminals.

What's the situation with these, are they one of those vehicles where you …What's the situation with these, are they one of those vehicles where you can legally ride them on neither the road or the pavement?


This is the practical truth:

1) these are illegal outside of private land/garden

2) No copper will take the time to stop you so that's not a problem

3) If you caused an accident (say you bumped into someone and they fell over and cracked their head) your liability is basically unlimited and if you were liable, you could lose everything and a little known fact is that personal injury debts are not automatically wiped with bankruptcy - so if they need life-time care, you'll pay forever.


Happy riding.

Fair point, but it is the same risk for a riding a bike


No home insurance would cover you and also riding a bike isn't illegal - so without getting into the complexity - the calculation of liability is different.

Here if you get into an accident, the starting position for the people suing you (say an insurance company) was that you were acting illegal - something that Is undeniable from the start.

So unlike riding a bike, you'd get sued, you'd likely get bankrupted but that wouldn't save you because personal injury judgements are not discharged unless a judge orders it (s.281(5) of the Insolvency Act 1986) - so you could pay forever.

That is before you get into criminal charges...

Obviously most people aren't going to injury other people - they just need to way up the risk - as long as you don't have a decent job,home and career and don't plan to have one you should go for it.

Just got back from Spain and the Spanish use these things all the time, many of which were much larger and more elaborate than these. I also couldn't get over how fast they went. They must have unrestricted versions in Europe.

No more dangerous then riding a bike or some old chap in a mobility scooter...

Clearly don't use it on a motor way..

But I've seen more issues with people on small and large mobility scooters on the side wall..

A few more:
Because they're illegal, you can't get insurance either
Potentially points on your licence for not having insurance/mot/correct licence
If you are over the drink drive limit on one, you could lose your driving licence too.

Fair point, but it is the same risk for a riding a bike
Am I correct in saying then you can't ride these off private land legally ?

Home contents insurance would probably cover you for personal liability though if on a bike, but if you don't live in a home or don't have insurance obviously you wouldn't be covered either

I love mine. I ride it everywhere. So much easier than the bus or the car for a short trip to the supermarket.
Totally agree regarding DPD.

Are they officially planning importing the Pro to Europe?
My friend saw somebody got fined scooter and helmet taken because he was riding on the road in London. Then again its motorised scooter so you are not allowed to ride on the pavement either.

Worth pointing out that police have been told to start enforcing the law regarding these. The MET police had a week long crackdown at the end of April. They confiscated scooters and warned people but can also fine riders £300 and give points on your driving licence (if you have one). I think you're unlikely to get stopped but please be aware that it could (and has) happen.
The government is meant to be debating the law this summer but I doubt things will change.

If you see mythical God-like legend of a man wearing a yellow ski suit with matching ski goggles and a red rucksack tearing through the city centre on one of these, narrowly avoiding capture by riding at speeds in excess of 10KPH straight through the middle of two PCSOs trying to create a human roadblock... that will be me.
Correct me if I'm wrong but it's not illegal to own one and it would be very difficult to prove that the motor was being used if the rider had the common sense to physically scoot past any officials.......

I expect the review will go the other way. The vast majority of police departments seem to not be bothered about scooters on the road and the law will likely chnage to reflcet this.

I'd be happy to be proved wrong. I think PLVs are the future of urban transport but have absolutely no faith in our current government. As it stands the UK is the only EU country that doesn't allow these in any way whatsoever.
I'm hoping they do the right thing but I'm not going to hold my breath.

There are a few ways for getting third party insurance for riding a bike i.e. British Cycling, that way you're covered. Leccie scooters are essentially unregistered and uninsured motorised vehicles - if you get caught riding one whilst p*ssed you can say goodbye to your licence.

Good luck if you cause an accident:

"My defence is that the law will change in the future"
I see police in London stopping people riding these. They're unlawful to use on the public road, and rightly so.
