PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Police are already cracking down on e-scooters across areas in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire with fines issued to people who use them illegally. The current laws around e-scooters is that if you use a privately-owned e-scooter on any public road, cycle lane or pavement you could get a £300 fixed-penalty notice and six points on your driving licence. E-scooters have changed the face of transportation in Slough and Bucks, with residents able to whiz around town for as little as £1. But pedestrians haven't exactly welcomed e-scooters with open arms, calling them a 'nuisance' and 'dangerous' for use on pavements. In October 2021, Thames Valley Police seized one of their first e-scooters in Bracknell town centre after councillors raised concerns over their use in public spaces. Police at the time said: "An electric scooter has been seized by the Bracknell Neighbourhood Town Centre team after it was ridden on the High Street, despite a Section 59 (Police Reform Act 2002) warning being issued to the rider last month." Public safety fears surrounding e-scooters has also been brought to attention over the last couple of days in Aylesbury. Cllr Richard Lloyd backed the concerns of a resident who highlighted a “major health and safety issue” relating to a Zipp Mobility e-scooter “island” on the Bierton Road, in Aylesbury, in saying the ‘location needs reviewing’. Mr Richard Conlon said ‘more needed to be done’ to protect the public from scooters he said it was “quite typical” to find tipped over at the spot opposite The Weavers pub, especially for those who have trouble seeing. ALSO READ: Review of e-scooter bays ‘needed’ after ‘major’ safety fears flagged In light of recent concerns made regarding electric scooters, we asked the Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police what is being done to keep the issue at bay. Chief Constable John Campbell said: "There are rules and regualtions around when you can use an e-scooter. A privately owned e-scooter can be used on private land and if people are looking to use them to ride them dangerously, the police have a part to play in that. window._taboola = window._taboola || []; if (whiteList !== true) { if (isMobile()) { midArticleTaboolaOptions = { mode: 'thumbnails-mid-mob', container: 'taboola-nq-mid-article', placement: 'NQ Mid Article Mobile', target_type: 'mix' } } else { midArticleTaboolaOptions = { mode: 'thumbnails-mid-desk', container: 'taboola-nq-mid-article', placement: 'NQ Mid Article Desktop', target_type: 'mix' } } _taboola.
