Total pavement ban planned for scooters and bikes
08 October 2019 @ 16:56

Electric scooter users and cyclists will soon be prohibited from both riding and parking on pavements under a new set of regulations being prepared by the Traffic Department.

The new rules were outlined today by Pere Navarro, Director General of Traffic, in his official presentation of the latest campaign on behalf of wheelchair users -  "I can't go here, I can't fit through there" (Por aquí no puedo, por aquí no paso) promoted by the Association of People with Spinal Injuries & Severe Physical Disabilities (ASPAYM).

"Pavements are for pedestrians, wheelchair users and for people pushing prams and pushchairs," he said "and our intention is that vehicles such as scooters will not use them in any capacity."

"Current regulations prevent scooters and bikes traveling along the pavements, but we also want to prevent them parking there too," he added.
