Poland plans to impose restrictions on electric scooters

08.08.2019 11:41
The Polish government has unveiled proposals to regulate electric scooters, which are used by almost ten percent of Poles, citing fears that the vehicles pose a threat to pedestrians.

Electric scooters, capable of speeds of up to 30 km/h, have arrived relatively recently on Polish streets, and many people have been unclear about the rules on using them.

Under the new proposals, electric scooters will be treated as bicycles, and will only be allowed to use sidewalks if there is no cycle lane and the sidewalk is sufficiently large.

Users will have to give way to pedestrians.

On Wednesday , Poland’s Ministry of Infrastructure said: “These proposals will ensure a higher degree of safety for road users, for both pedestrians as well as the users of electric scooters themselves.”

In addition, the proposals seek to restrict electric scooters so they are no wider than 90 cm, have a length of up to 1.25 metres, and weigh no more than 20 kg. They will not be allowed to go faster than 25 km/h.

Children under ten will be banned from using such vehicles, even if accompanied.
