ACT government opens public consultation on e-scooters

Changes to the ACT government’s road rules are needed to make the use of e-scooters legal in public areas, as they are currently banned from roads and footpaths.

Road Safety Minister Shane Rattenbury will on Tuesday launch a discussion paper seeking people’s views on what restrictions the government should place on e-scooter use.

The government needs to decide where people should be allowed to ride them – for example on roads or footpaths – what the speed limit should be, and who should be able to use them.
