Scooters And One Wheels

The police remind drivers to be taught the principles for hiring e-scooters

The Copeland e-scooter program was successful last week.

A number of residents of the area were excited to try them out.

However, since the system was introduced as part of a government initiative, Copeland Police have reminded people who use it to read up on the legislation fully.

Those who rent them out need to make sure they have read the terms and conditions.

Specifically, that the e-scooters are not allowed to be used on the pavement and that drivers have a full UK or provisional driver’s license and must be at least 18 years of age.

Police said it is still a criminal offense for drivers not to give officers their driver’s license information in order to rent a scooter for someone under the age of 18.

This also applies to the rental of scooters to those without a license who may face criminal prosecution if it is determined that it is permitted. Police are asking drivers to check the government website before using them.
