The Neighbourhood team have seized 2 powered bikes and issued section 59 warning notices to individuals using e-bikes in a manner which is causing or likely to cause alarm, distress or annoyance to members of the public. If these individuals are observed again within a 12 month period, their bikes can be seized.
We have held a number of e-scooter operations in the Woodley precinct and made the public aware of the rules around e-scooters through social media campaigns. e-scooters can only be used on private land e-scooters are illegal on any public highway, pavement or in a public space You cannot get insurance to ride these on the road
Therefore, privately owned e-scooters can only be used on private land, with the permission of the landowner.
Some parts of the UK are running government trials of rental e-scooters, though there aren't any schemes currently in Berkshire.
