Helmeted e-scooter riders commuting in Dublin city centre (nanny state, out of pictures).
With an already shaky law governing the e-scooters…
This morning, via Via The Irish Examiner:
E-scooters will be limited to speeds of 25km per hour under new proposals.
They will have to be fitted with ‘speed-limiting devices’.
Fianna Fáil is bringing forward a bill to legislate for the safe use of e-scooters, which are currently illegal on public roads.
It wants e-scooters limited to speeds of 25km per hour, with fines due to anyone found to have tampered with the speed-limiting technology.
Anyone who does travel faster than 25km per hour would also be fined if caught.
And good luck with all that.
‘fro, to be fair.
