Electric Scooters: Speed Limits
Lords
To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they have taken to ensure that the police can enforce the legal speed limits for road users on the users of electric scooters especially those that travel at more than 20 miles per hour.
Answered on: 11 July 2019

Existing road traffic legislation applies to electric scooters. How the police enforce speed limits for electric scooters is an operational matter for individual Chief Officers of police in conjunction with local policing plans.
