Last week, Speakers in the House of Lords debated e-scooters: notably their safety and whether more stringent regulation is needed amid claims that they are posing a danger to pedestrians.
Speaking to Insurance Times, Clyde & Co's Alistair Kinley commented, "By having this debate, the House of Lords looks to be asking the government to look beyond the closely regulated settings of the various e-scooter trials and to take account of what's happening on streets and pavements across the country. Widespread illegal use of e-scooters is endemic."
Alistair continues by explaining that ministers need to reach an informed conclusion about the rules and regulations to make e-scooters safe for all, including those that are deaf or partially sighted.
