No I didn't


But my mate's nan's daughter's fella's second cousin's alternate dog groomer's postman's podiatrists's primary school substitute teacher's toddler said they read a tweet about an 'article' in the Metro 'reporting' on a Buzzfeed "Top 10 Duck ponds in Wolverhampton" that included a link to an advert from Humberside police warning people that one time they gave some bloke with a big white beard and red outfit 600 years hard labour and fifteen points on his license for posting escooter deals.

IT'S THE LAW
Waiting for the “wait for it” comment
no - people riding in to me and hitting me affects my judgment. And good luck catching the cyclist who clatters you for his insurance details, it is normally a quick bout of obscenities and then off they speed. Also last time I looked I'm not sure that cyclists are legally entitled to ride on pavements. Cyclists are not demons - bad cyclists are though and there's a lot of them. Like I say - when scootersists cause me as much grief as cyclists (as a pedestrian and a motorist) I won't be shy in saying so.Not happened yet.
Poured a glass of wine and waiting too😋

Only legal to drive in your back garden with a seatbelt, helmet and insurance. Think that covers everything
I would wait for.the pro version. Good price though.

Fixed penalty for riding/driving a motor vehicle without insurance is £300 and 6 points on your licence, and they can also confiscate the scooter. That is the offence the cops usually pursue, as it is an easy bust and allows them to confiscate, but there would be several other offences committed.

To be a legal electrically assisted pedal cycle it needs to have pedals, and not run electrically unless it is being pedalled (no throttle). There are also restrictions on top speed, motor power, and some others.

There is a law, but you got it wrong.
Ah legal smeagel
Going in cycles every post




Anyway what's like new? Is it new or just a used product what's kept in good condition since a lot of my product must be internally overworked but externally they look new
Don't own or want one but people ride them a lot round here (Essex) - normally on the pavement but with much less menace/danger than from cyclists. I'd have these over bikes on pavements any day. Not aware of anyone getting pulled over - there'll always be idiots but ridden sensibly don't see a problem personally.

And yet I've never been arrested for carrying a plank on a pavement.

Come clean, did you get time in the gaol for salmon handling in suspicious circumstances (I don't want the facts, thanks) and this has made you paranoid?

Irrationally hate cycling that much eh?

not irrational mate - never been knocked over by a scooter - been hit and knocked over by cyclists on pavements and zebra crossings several times near home and in central London- never with an apology, normally with abuse. Likewise when they try to undertake cars while they are turning left and ignoring red lights. Rational and factual. If xiaomi scooters start knocking me over I'll let you know. Not happened yet.

Sounds the very definition of irrational.

Cyclists are demons because they've hit you (I'll take your word for that), yet scooter riders who are actually breaking the law, all while behaving in the same way but just haven't happened to have bumped into you yet.

It's as if you're saying that riding a bike affects your reasoning whereas riding a scooter doesn't.

Nevermind the fact that a great many people's house insurance gives them third party cover when riding their bike but not on a scooter because they are piloting an unlawful, unlicenced vehicle.

Health and safety mad UK. Make sure to wear a high vis when breathing air as it might burn your lungs. Heat added. All sleepy towns need this
Too many Range Rovers and not enough of these.

How many people have died being hit by these in Europe versus cars?
Judge Dredd......is the law.

Looking forward to the but brigade.....

...but I was riding this scooter back in the day before I got a driving licence, popo did me for 6 points and a big fine.......
...just went and passed my test now I have to do a retest and what insurance companies didn't laugh at me down the phone want thousands to insure my car that cost me £500.

....but nobody told me......

You can use a throttle one if purchased before the rule change about 3 years ago. Must still have pedals though.

Legislation does not permit cyclists to ride on the pavement but a) children under the age of criminal responsibility obviously cannot be prosecuted and b) since 1999 the guidelines from the government have instructed police to use their discretion and not act unless there is a good reason.

Just so we are clear, you'd rather share pavements with scooters not bikes. Same breadth of humans piloting them. The scooters will cure them of their anti-social behaviour. OK.....

You don't seem to understand why laws are made. Its to protect the general public and users of certain devices. If the police won't crack down on dangerous lorry drivers, motorists, cyclists etc but go after all electronic scooter riders is that;
a) helping society in general
b) being lazy and going after the easy low hanging fruit but not really helping society

Not seen any headlines yet along the lines of electric scooter rider causes several deaths after dangerously overtaking on a wet road near a blind corner...

I have seen a few dangerous electric scooter riders on paths heavily used by pedestrians but so far seen more dangerous cyclists on said paths...

I'm not sure of your first point. I'm not giving any opinion on the the moral right of scooters to use the road. I'm saying that bicycles are no greater risk than scooters.

As things stand Scooters are low hanging fruit because they are unlawful to use. Whether that is morally right is another matter.
I have one, just been told my scooter should not be ridden in the rain it’s has void my warranty LOL DONT BUY

Driving dangerously is far more of a concern to society and should keep the police more than busy. Bar London you are very unlikely to be stopped I suspect if scootering safely.
