E-scooters and e-cycles: important reminders

In particular, users of e-scooters and e-cycles:

  • must be 18 years or over;
  • must wear a protective safety helmet (bicycle helmet);
  • must ride only on roads with a speed limit of 50 km/h or less;
  • are prohibited from riding on sidewalks;
  • must, in the case of self-service e-scooters, park the scooters only in designated areas marked with painted logos.
