Rule 64 of the Highway code:

You MUST NOT cycle on a pavement

But I'm sure you like everyone else have seen people ride there bicycle on the pavement, so you can just ride this on the pavement.
Ban everything just in case .......

I love the idea of these electric scooters for adults zipping to the train station and back but I want to see if they take off. Have to admit this is a compelling price though.

yeah same here, hope they introduce laws & regulations for them so we can use them with a clear conscious. I've rode past police in london and canterbury without any problems but have heard of them beginning to crackdown on it

Yeah, I've seen people scoot around near Liverpool St whizzing past other commuters. The regulations should be on par with bikes. These early models seem to have quite a few problems so I'll wait until regulations and standards get up to date

It's not a bicycle. It's classed as a motor vehicle so you need to tax, insure & register it and then you can use it on the road.

Yes, the regulations are stupid.

Plenty of people doing just that in parts of London, seen a few people with them on the mersey trains in liverpool, if they make them legal can see them taking of big time, the question is will are government want to keep us in cars so they can tax us to death, goverment only really Interested in the environment if they can tax people on it, the motorist is an easy cash cow for the UK government so they are not going to want to lose that money anytime soon, especially as we have a growing population that they need to flourish in benefits to keep the votes coming in.

I beg to differ mate - especially in London! We have LEZ, ULEZ, Congestion charge. My poor mate from Yorkshire popped into central London in his diesel van and got slapped with a £1,000 fine. I can only speak for london but these scooters take up a lot less space than bikes and at limited speeds say 15mph they are also relatively safe as long as you have a helmet and are in a designated lane/zone. I think these would be a great alternative to bikes. Being electric and foldable makes them convenient to carry around public transport. This is pretty much the real life alternative to a hoverboard. They could definitely take off but they'd need government support.

Here in Nottinghamshire, we have cycle lanes on the pavement, as seen in the photo below.
