Alternative spelling of "car parks".


From the popular song- "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot".

The police don’t care about scooters. I see loads of people using them.
Trouble is, if plod has had a bad day, he might confiscate them.

For the moment, they are mostly stopping people and telling them that riding escooters is illegal. What usually happens next is the rider picks up his scooter and carries it away. If not, they can charge you with not having licence, registration, insurance, and so on, and they have done so- LINK

Weight 6kg, max speed 8mph, why this one should be more dangerous in a park than a kids bicycle? Not saying is right to break the law, but I rather get hit by this than a bicycle.
Got this one for my 3 year old one, is this classed the same as the scooter and cannot be used in parks?

It is also illegal to ride a bicycle on pedestrian pavements. Any motorised transport is covered by the Road Traffic Act 1988 and the Highway Act 1835 (which also applies to unpowered vehicles) LINK. Electrically assisted pedal cycles and mobility scooters have their own regulations, but escooters and other powered "toys" don't comply, so are viewed under the law the same as an unregistered, uninsured motor car.
The rules are ridiculous. Mobility scooter and SOME(not all) users are morons and drive on the roads blocking the traffic then drive inconsiderable on the pavements causing hazard to pedestrians and nobody gives a peanut they have no insurance -.-

1835 says it all. I guess most parents encourage their children to break the law, as the parks are full with kids riding bicycles on pavement. Better watch out when my 3 year old will come out on full speed, 2 miles per hour on his electric car, it will be carnage😁
I guess police does not say much because the law is not clear enough. Damn with the EU, we now have to comply with their legislation , we should come out and start applying the Victorian rules. Was planning to get the drone out today, but it probably does not comply with the air traffic act 1622.
By the way, I'm not saying you are wrong, the law is the law! Ask Boris😁

That act is only about driving on pedestrian footpaths, and it is not only still in force, but essential. You don't want lorries or motorcycles mounting the curb and using footpaths to get past obstacles. The fact that this has been law for almost two centuries shows what a very good law it is (and it applies to horse drawn carriages and bicycles as well as motor vehicles).

I'm not saying it is not a good law, I'm saying it needs to be updated in line with what 'vehicles ' we have now. The same as it had happened with vaping. I certainly do not want lorries on my road, but I don't mind kids riding scooters on the pavement. Police does not know what to do if they find you using an electric scooter. People do not know if they should buy it either. One rule applies somewhere, same rule does not apply in a different part of the country. Rules should be rules.
With regards to the scooter in question, I personally believe it is ridiculous kids not to be allowed to ride this almost everywhere apart from where the cars drive, but this is my personal opinion.

It has been updated- in that legislation has been added to permit mobility scooters and wheelchairs to use pedestrian paths. No need to change the base 1835 law for that. If Parliament thought fit, they could legislate further, to allow other vehicles on footpaths, but they haven't. They have also added legislation to permit the use of electrically assisted pedal bicycles (with various restrictions on speed, etc) but not on footpaths. This would be additional to the Road Traffic Act 1988. Apologists for illegal escooter use often make much of the age of the 1835 law, as if it made it invalid, but it has been illegal to commit murder and other crimes for much longer. Not an issue.

If there is a future change to allow escooters, I would expect it to be additional to the Road Traffic Act 1988, not to the Highway Act 1835, as they are unlikely to allow them on pedestrian footpaths any more than they do bicycles or electric bicycles. They will also likely have an age limit and many type restrictions like the EAPCs - LINK. Escooters you can buy now almost certainly won't comply.

Nothing to do with the EU - it's old UK legislation (you know, the stuff the ancient Brexiteers want to go back to 'cos it was better in the old days with rickets, etc.). They forget it was pre-electricity and kids were sent up chimneys then !
Handy for starting your kids' criminal records while they're still young!

It’s a post for a deal on an electric scooter - your comments about them are nothing to do with the deal. They’re just boring and unnecessary. I think everyone knows by now that these are illegal to use other than on private property because every deal for an electric scooter is hijacked by you or another killjoy that wants to get their boring comments in there!

I assume you stop children riding their bikes on pavements and in parks to warn them they should be riding on the road? That's equally as illegal under the same act that covers these toys...
