Last week, the German cabinet passed the driving permit for electric scooters. Then, just waiting for the parliament's upper house to vote, the electric scooter can legally drive on the German road. The German government said that the legislation will be licensed as soon as May 17th.

In the past, such vehicles were illegal because they did not apply to any existing traffic laws in Germany.

The cabinet proposes that for electric scooters with a top speed of 12km/h, they can only be driven on roadsides, sidewalks and bicycle lanes. The rider must be older than or equal to 12 years old; for electric scooters with a top speed of 20km/h, only It can be driven on a designated bicycle lane, and the rider is at least 14 years old.

In addition to the large amount of support for this law, Germany also has some voices of opposition:

First, from the perspective of safety, according to a survey by the US supervisory organization Consumer Report, since 2017, there have been more than 1,500 accidents related to electric scooters in the United States, and there have been a large number of accidents involving electric scooters in the world.

Second, from the management, because electric scooters do not have parking piles, many people will leave them at the entrance of the road or the building after arriving at the destination.

The third is deliberate destruction and theft. A large number of scooters were thrown into the lake, causing environmental pollution.

The fourth is to further aggravate the old infrastructure. At present, cars, bicycles and pedestrians must already be squeezed on limited roads at the same time.

In addition, after passing the driving permit for electric scooters, the public will definitely advocate legal road rights for similar vehicles, and the government will also face other legislative work similar to transportation.

Hickfried Brockman, the head of the Underwriters Accident Research Institute, is an opponent of the decree. He strongly recommends that the House of Lords not pass the decree because it will lead to more accidents and the courts will be more difficult to refuse. Other appeals similar to transportation.

It seems that it is not easy to get electric scooters to get the right to road, even in developed countries.

But overall, the definition of electric scooters in the international market has gradually changed from entertainment tools to mobility tools.

Many countries have allowed electric scooters to go on the road in compliance with regulations. In Singapore, South Korea, Israel, etc., Europe has allowed electric scooters to drive on European roads in January 2016.

Among them, Singapore stipulates that the weight of electric scooters should not exceed 20kg, the width should not exceed 70cm, the maximum speed should be less than 25km/h; the speed on the sidewalk should not exceed 15km/h, and the speed on public roads should not exceed 25km/h.

Israel is even considered a "paradise for electric scooters." In Tel Aviv, Israel, an average of 10 people have used electric scooters.

Last month, the British government also considered investing $119 million to encourage new modes of travel such as electric scooters. Previously, electric scooters were banned from passing on British roads.

At the same time, some countries and cities still lack the norms of electric scooters.

In 2015, Sydney, Australia imposed a high fine on the road balance car and electric scooter. The maximum penalty was over RMB 2,000. At the end of 2018, a woman was driving on the streets of Sydney and was issued five fines totaling $2,581 (about 12,300 RMB).

Since Sydney does not have regulations on electric scooters, it is legally defined as a motorcycle. The Sydney traffic police issued five tickets to the woman on the basis of driving the motorcycle: the first unlicensed driving (fine AUD 561), driving uninsured motorcycles ($ 673), driving unlicensed motorcycles ($ 673), driving on the sidewalk (AUD 337) and driving without a helmet (AUD 337).

China has introduced a new national standard for regulating electric bicycles, but there are still no laws and regulations regulating electric scooters. Therefore, electric scooters have no road rights in China.

Some experts have pointed out that only cities that meet these conditions are suitable for electric scooters: dense population, smooth roads (the scooter requires a lot of road leveling than bicycles), bicycle lanes, related laws and regulations, and skateboarding. The car culture and the overall quality of the population are relatively high.

For the reason why China has not yet released the right to drive electric scooters, Weilun.com used to be in the balance car, electric scooter really unsafe? "There are four reasons: 1. Electric scooters, balance vehicles and other means of transportation are not safe, from hardware, use and education; 2. lags in laws and regulations and lack of standards; 3. lack of road rights education; The lag of urban planning.

Unsound regulations, imperfect roads, uneven hardware, and low safety awareness of the riders have made it difficult for most cities in China to safely ride electric scooters.

Xiao Bian is especially deeply touched by the imperfections of the road. Compared with some western countries, many sidewalks in Guangzhou are relatively narrow, because those countries rarely plant trees on the sidewalks, usually in a city where there are grasslands and trees in several places. Basically, only two pedestrians or one bicycle can pass, and sometimes they are full of shared bicycles, so they are often forced to ride on the motorway.

Another country allows electric scooters to go on the road! When is it the turn of China? - In the case of Weilun.com, it is difficult for the bicycle to pass smoothly on the sidewalk. First, some of the road piers lack the slopes for providing wheeled vehicles. (People who repair this road may think that every bicycle is a mountain bike) Second, there are too many pits on the road, and the bumpy ride is not more comfortable than walking.

The electric scooter's requirements for the road are even more difficult, otherwise the most basic safety can not be guaranteed.

Regarding how to promote the liberalization of electric scooters, Weilun.com believes that re-planning the distribution of road rights and regulating the guidance of riders will help solve the chaos of pedestrians, bicycles, cars and other vehicles.

In planning the distribution of road rights, Singapore's approach is worth learning – Singapore has four roads: pure walkways, motorways, sidewalks and public roads. For the first two, electric scooters are not allowed. For the latter two, electric Scooters are sometimes limited in speed.

Of course, this method is one of the ways to let go of the electric scooter right, and there are many other problems that need some time to solve.

Some people say that if the export is transferred to domestic sales, electric scooters definitely have great potential to stimulate the economy. For China, which is currently under pressure from the economy, this is undoubtedly a great opportunity to stimulate consumption and promote employment. However, considering the safety of the people, the Chinese government has not rushed to liberalize the right to drive electric scooters.

Do not let go of the right to road, not the government's lazy politics, but need to gradually promote the country's conditions, so that the rider can ride safely, the merchants can take less detours when production, the relevant departments can manage when there are rules to follow.

On the contrary, it is an irresponsible act to let go of the right of way. It will only make the road situation worse and pedestrians have no security.

As consumers, we should be happy for the safety of our walking safety; as a company, we should be glad that the company has reduced the losses caused by chaotic production and random delivery.

Going out, safety first, convenient and safe way to travel is what we need most.
