E-Scooters concerning speed limit!

Updated: Jul 2, 2020

Have you heard about the concerning speed limit that has been allowed for E-Scooters . I definitely think we need to consider the safety of pedestrians here and ensure those on scooters do not end up jumping on a pavement as they could end up going into someone who is visually impaired , elderly or even a child . The noise is also quieter than a car , so will you be aware of these if someone is on a e-scooter whizzing past ?

Some valid points raised here by the RNIB but is this something we may want to embrace as away forward as they are electric . I think we need to make sure our roads are geared up to be able to cope and accommodate electric scooters otherwise there may be some accidents both on the roads and pavements and address speed. But these may be a good opportunity for travel - but I want to be able to go on one too? What about you, what are your thoughts? .
