The week of enforcement saw 507 e-scooters removed from London’s roads following proactive patrols across all boroughs. The week was triggered by the increased usage of uninsured e-scooters on London road networks.

Throughout the week of enforcement, officers targeted e-scooters, conducting stops, checking vehicle eligibility and seizing e-scooters that are being used illegally. This work will remain ongoing.

In addition to ensuring the safety of roads users, it is a priority for officers to engage with e-scooter riders and the public, educating them on the law and enforcing it where necessary.

E-scooters are illegal when driven on public roads and pavements, cycle lanes and publicly accessible land, including parks and car parks.

Riders using e-scooters on the road risk fines, points on their licence, and e-scooter seizures if they continue to use them on public road networks.”We remind people that incident that occur on e-scoters can be reported like any other traffic offence by using the report a traffic incident link: https://www.met.police.uk/ro/report/rti/rti-a/report-a-road-traffic-incident/
