Why this scooter was seized by police in King's Lynn and declared an uninsured vehicle
Police have seized an e-scooter after the driver was found to be under the influence and "driving" without insurance.
Yesterday officers stopped a man in Lynn and found he wasn't driving with the correct insurance for an E-Scooter.
They posted a picture to their Twitter account after arresting the driver on London Road.
Currently there are no laws surrounding bicycles or regular scooters, but e-scooters, which are motorised, need to be insured before use.
According to insurance provider LV e-scooters are currently illegial in the UK due to safety concerns.
However, the UK recently announced a trial period on rental e-scooters.
Privately-owned e-scooters, which are widely available to buy online, are illegal to use on public roads, cycle lanes and pavements.
To ride one you must have the Category Q entitlement on your driving licence to use an e-scooter. Full or provisional UK driving licence for categories AM, A or B includes this entitlement.
