An e-scooter is a motor vehicle regardless of whether you agree with the law or not.
This means that in order to be road legal an e-scooter must meet all the standards required of a motor vehicle required by the Road Traffic Act 1988. In other words they must be registered with DVLA, licensed, taxed, insured and fitted with number plates before they are permitted to be ridden on a road, which includes a pavement.

Tonight officers were called to Henfords Marsh in Warminster where the rider of an e-scooter had crashed into another car. The rider, a local male aged 47 years who was not wearing a helmet, was arrested at the scene having provided a positive specimen of breath before being escorted to hospital to treat significant injuries. The e-scooter has also been seized by the Police.

Although there is no legal requirement to wear a helmet, common sense would suggest that this is best practice.

The owner of the car hit will now have to engage the services of their insurance company to repair the damage and recover their losses caused by the uninsured rider.
Insp Pete Sparrow said, “Despite repeatedly highlighting the law around these e-scooters, there remains a complacency where an element of the public consider that the current law does not apply to them. We are aware that some areas of the country are trialling the use of e-scooters which are hired. In these cases they are hired with the suitable checks of drivers license and come with tax and insurance. We have no such trials in the Wiltshire area and so the only place they can be ridden without the law applying is on private land. We will apply the law as it currently stands and not hypothesise on any potential changes to the law.”

PC 377 Williams of Warminster Police, who is investigating the offence, would like to speak to any witnesses who saw the crash, particularly a female who had left prior to the police attendance. If they contact Wiltshire Police on 101 quoting reference 54210064519
