In his ministerial role for the secretary of state for transport, Ross’s MP Jesse Norman said what plans the government has to bring forward legislative proposals on light powered vehicles to enable the creation of appropriate legal standards for e-scooters.

Mr Norman said: “Government intends to create a Low-speed Zero Emission Vehicle (LZEV) category that is distinct from the cycle and motor vehicle categories. The first beneficiaries of this new system will be e-scooters. No final decisions about e-scooter regulations have been made and the department will consult publicly before any new arrangements come into force.”

A full set of findings from our evaluation of the e-scooter trials will be published in due course.
