Are Electric Scooters Legal in the UK?
Currently, you can buy an electric scooter but you can't ride it on a public road in the UK, or use it on a pavement or cycle lane. If you do so you are committing an offence.
The good news is, you can use an e-scooter on private land, with the permission of the landowner.
This said, many Londoners do use their electric scooters to ride to work and there are many scooter rental shops in London, despite their use on roads etc. being against the law.
Smart Boards UK can deliver your electric scooter to your London address with next day delivery if ordered before 3pm. We must remind customers to use your electric scooter legally.
Why Are Electric Scooters Popular in London?
Whilst London weather is perhaps not the best for E-Scooters (we can understand why they are very popular in Paris and the U.S!) we know that scooters in London are still extremely popular.
With congested roads and a packed London Underground, we believe that is why some people do use their scooters to commute to and from work in London.
We also know that ‘everything costs more in London’ but that jobs also pay more and there is more cash floating around in general.
“London produced £487 billion ($624B) or around 1/4 of UK GDP in 2018, while the economy of the London metropolitan area — the largest in Europe—generates around 1/3 of the UK's GDP or almost $1.0 trillion.” Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_London
