I love these, imho it’s high time we caught up with the rest of the world and put the necessary laws, insurance etc in place so these affordable, economic and energy efficient modes of transport can safely and legally share our roadways


The thing is, these weren't made "illegal". It's just some funny old Act from the 1800s that needs changing and the media blew it out of proportion. Bicycles that are electric powered to 15mph are perfectly legal on the roads due to it being "pedal assisted". All they have to do is change the 1800s act and all is good.

The media saying 'omg, they can reach 30mph' etc is silly. I've been on dual carriage ways on my non electric road bike and travelled at 45mph over a few miles and 30mph on average. They just love to fk everything up.

I drive, too. What's your point? Don't you mean 'Traffic Acts?' Also, these are perfectly legal in parks and amongst other places. Me and the lady have taken them to Richmond Park and rode around there for a while. It's not all about commuting.

it will soon be legal as soon as the government finds a way they can tax
Death Trap with the state of our roads.... Best putting that £349 towards your funeral plan

Was hoping the government would have started to make electric scooters legal to help the uk public get to work at a time when the cost of living is going up and wages staying stagnant, and also get people out of fossil fueled vehicles, but instead the government would rather keep the masses taxed at every move, and are only really interested in the environment and going green when they can tax the uk public. The government never does much to help the uk people only make life harder, a lot of other EU countries have made these scooters legal, amazing how quickly we follow other EU countries if it creates a tax or will make the 2% richer.

On this, I can get to work in 22 min Vs 1 hour in car or 1h 20min by bus...

Such as?
During the xiaomi recall at halfords I just requested a refund instead of replacement, but if they do ever become legal I will definitely buy another, I had mine for around 3 months and it was a pleasure to ride, my work commute was a 12 mile round trip which it just about completed running the battery to around 10%, I set the regen braking to medium and that way never had to use the back brake and tyres pumped to 50psi this gave me the extra range needed, I weigh around 78kg so could not complain.

Or, like your username suggests, you could cycle through London and not break the law..

At the top speed of 15mph for the entire journey, that's 5.4 miles.

Average speed of a cyclist in London is 14mph, so it would take you 23 mins.

Probably worth the extra 60 seconds to stay legal.

This has inflatable tyres, suspension just adds more weight to scooter and more to go wrong.

Would anyone take insurance ? lol No chance

Bit like cargeddon? Motorbikegedon? Same thing.

Quicker travel times, less congestion, less pollution... the list goes on. Some people will buy these and leave them in storage, bit like a bike or joining the gym, they stop going after a few weeks. Real commuters will benefit from this.

No I went for a refund never stated this at the time as I did not want other people to have the same idea and blow my chances of a refund, I have a very nosey neighbour that loves to make people's life harder, he told me he would keep reporting me to the police, I know he does this as he is constantly reporting someone for something, he is the kind of person that will sit there putting everyone's number plate into the dvla to see who has let their tax expire etc, then he is straight onto the council and police. Luckily the police and council etc are all fed up with him and have lately threatened to prosecute him for harassment towards his neighbours including us.

Have you got a driving licence?, if not you will be okay, I did not want to risk my licence, if it was not for my neighbour i still would have took the chance.

guess it depends on cost, my 50cc moped was only £58 for the year, people buying this scooter will be looking to save money, if the insurance is a silly price of say £500 it will start to defeat the idea of owning one of these. You could also argue that if these need insurance then why not bicycles also that could do as much damage if not more.

We should look at the bigger picture and think of the lives that will be saved from less pollution. Also how many lives will be saved by having less motorists on the road, would you rather be hit by a 15mph scooter or a 30+ mph car weighing over 1000kg? Around 450 pedestrians in the uk are killed each year from being ran over or hit from motor vehicles, and thousands more being injured or killed from vehicle collisions.

Why would they need to be insured? Bicycles existed before roads and roads were built for cyclists after they protested for better roads and then came along motor vehicles.

You going to ask a 12 year old to insure his little Argos scooter?

Bikes have never been insured mandatory, neither have roller blades, skateboards, and push scooters.

There's thousands and thousands of uninsured drivers and motorcyclists. Also thousands still using their phone while driving or sitting in traffic. Sort out what kills first, then move on to the stuff that doesn't matter just because everyone wants to look like they care.

I use mine to commute as a back up to the car for when there's roadworks, or my other half needs car. My hours where changed by work so now fight through the morning commute, school run etc, due to hills, if I take the car it's about 2 mins quicker as long as no issues. But I find car driving at that time trying to push through traffic stressful, it's certainly not safer for other people me being in a car running late for work.

With the scooter I can just go around the traffic arrive unstressed and happy. I also brought a racing bike, bent right over, pot holes and busy roads poor visibility with a fear could come off if hit a bad bump or could get clipped by a car. Honestly used the bike twice brought for the health benefits but felt was too dangerous.

These I feel are far safer. Logically me making the commute on a scooter is far better for the community a single person commuting in a car, to a location without public transport links on a varied flexible work pattern.

Dept of Transport report seems to disagree with that:

With adult cyclists, police found the driver solely responsible in about 60%-75% of all cases, and riders solely at fault 17%-25% of the time.
Don't get one if you live in London, they now place random police check points around the city and handing out fines for anything electric left and right. Already got mine confiscated and fined.
