Another country allows electric scooters to go on the road


Apr 17,2019


Last week, the German cabinet passed the driving permit for electric scooters. Then, just waiting for the parliament’s upper house to vote, the electric scooter can legally drive on the German road. The German government said that the legislation will be licensed as soon as May 17th.

In the past, such vehicles were illegal because they did not apply to any existing traffic laws in Germany.

The cabinet proposes that for electric scooters with a top speed of 12 km/h, they can only be driven on roadsides, sidewalks and bicycle lanes. The rider must be older than or equal to 12 years old; for electric scooters with a top speed of 20 km/h It can only be driven on a designated bicycle lane, and the rider is at least 14 years old.
