Police in new warning about unlawful e-scooter use

The Roads Policing Unit at Merseyside Police has issued a fresh warning to e-scooter riders – they are illegal to use on public roads. Officers spotted one last night being ridden at around 30mph in the Halewood area of ​​the city, and took action.

They tweeted at 10.22pm on Friday: “E-scooter sighted being ridden at approximately 30mph in the Halewood area. Vehicle stopped and seized for having no insurance.

“A 16-year-old male had been the rider, whose parents had bought it for him. Like it or not, private e-scooters are not road legal.”

The machines can be purchased legally in the UK but e-scooters can only be used on private land and not on public roads, cycle lanes or pavements. The only e-scooters that can be used on public roads are those that are rented as part of Government-backed trials.
