Private e-scooter warning as police seize vehicle on Bath Road

Thames Valley Police has warned people against using private e-scooters on public land after catching a rider today on the A4 Bath Road.

The force said it had previously warned the rider after they were spotted using a private e-scooter on December 21.

Officers spotted the two-wheeler enthusiast riding down the middle of the A4 Bath Road in Burnham today and seized the vehicle.

A statement from the Thames Valley Roads Policing account on Twitter said: “Private e-scooters cannot be ridden publicly, you cannot make them road legal or insure them.

“Don’t waste your money.”

Residents are able to use the orange e-scooters available under the council’s active travel partnership with Neuron Mobility.

    I'm confused. They're illegal if they're private ,but legal and available from the council for a fee. Why are the council scooters legal? I see these scooters used all the time, i seldom see them wearing a helmet. Why dont we just ban them from Slough altogether?
