A number of customers and people have reported that their scooters were taken off them by the police in central and other parts of London. This is a word of warning to riders out there that electric scooters are currently deemed illegal on the UK streets due to the fact that there is no law directly governing EVs. The police normally leave us alone but evidently since there is a trial going on they received a directive to crack down on anyone riding on public streets. Some give a warning while others take it away from you and fine you / take points off your license. It’s a disproportionate response and can possibly be contested in court. I’ve heard that all entities of authority are empowered to deal with it – be it road/traffic police, patrol officers, or community officers. Hopefully, the trial will prove electric scooters useful and we will see a law introduced that will help us to ride legally.
