PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! If you've visited Cambridge city centre recently, then we're sure you've seen a plethora of e-scooters whizzing around the streets. There has been a rise of e-scooter use in the city since October 2020 after e-scooter hire was introduced to improve local transport options in the area. E-scooters were introduced to the area over two years ago as part of a 12 month trial however, due to their popularity they have remained in the city ever since. Some commuters in Cambridge have also purchased their own e-scooters in a bid to reduce low emissions in the city, by switching their vehicles for an electric scooter. However, private e-scooters can only be used on private land. The only electric scooters which can be used on public roads are ones that people can rent as part of government-backed trials.

But the debate still remains between pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike on where e-scooters should be travelling. As a pedestrian, the pathway should be clear for all making it easy to get to your destination on foot - so some would argue that electric scooters should remain on the road.
