Question to the Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Assets : 2023/17 - E-Scooters and Bikes
Councillor Foweather asked:
E bikes, scooters E skateboards and scrambler bikes are now a constant problem in many wards across the city. These forms of transport travel at more than 20mph overtaking motorists and driving dangerously. It seems that the police and go safe are more concerned about catching motorists doing 26 mph than they are about tacking the problem of these other forms of transport.
Therefore, can you tell me what representations you have made to the police about tackling this problem?
Does the council have a strategy in place to help limit where these bikes and scooters can access?
Councillor Lacey Responded:
