Next year the UK government will decide whether to legalise e-scooters, following the results of the trials that are taking place in England. Illegal e-scooter use can have a dramatic and serious impact on people with disabilities, especially those with sight loss. The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) has launched a new petition asking the Prime Minister to make sure that safety is at the heart of any new law that is decided. Clearer information for the public on the illegal use of e-scooters is also needed, given that recent research shows that nearly two thirds of people don’t understand the law.
