Electric scooters – a message from South Yorkshire Police

With the festive season over, many people may be enjoying their new electric scooters, however it is important to know the laws around them so they can be enjoyed safely and in the right way.

Please note, electric scooters cannot be ridden on roads, pavements, or public spaces such as parks. They are classed as an ‘uninsured vehicle’ and can be seized by the Police.

You can only ride the scooters on private land with the landowners permission.

Further information on electric scooters can be found on theĀ Government website.
