It remains against the law to ride a privately owned escooter in any public place in Wyre.
Public places include roads, pavements, parks, town centres, promenades or canal towpaths. The only place a privately owned escooter can be used is on private land.
Escooters are classified as Personal Light Electric Vehicles (PLEVs) so they are treated as motor vehicles. As such, if they are used on a road, pavement or public place they are subject to the same legal requirements as any motor vehicle.
