E-Scooter update from Lincs Police

Thinking of buying an e-scooter?


Lincolnshire Police is reminding parents and guardians that e-scooters are not legal to use it on public pavements or roads.


Inspector Jason Baxter said, “Our approach to this will be to engage and educate. When that fails, we will enforce. We know that e-scooters are probably on Christmas lists this year, and may be tempting in the January sales, we just want people to think twice before buying a product that’s so limited in where you can legally use it.”


Whilst our aim is to engage and educate, penalties for using an e-scooter illegally can include seizure of the e-scooter.
