Due to the heavy penalty for driving an electric scooter without a license, causing public opinion controversy
According to the European Union News Agency, electric scooters have brought a series of safety problems while gradually gaining the Italian market due to low pollution, low consumption and environmental protection. In the society, the legislative call for electric electric scooter management is getting louder and louder. During this period, the Brescia traffic police imposed high fines on riding electric scooters on the grounds of no driver's license, which caused public opinion and social controversy.
According to reports, Brescia police said that recently, the local traffic police issued a 5,000 euro ticket to a 40-year-old man and detained the man's electric scooter. The reason for the fine is unlicensed driving.
According to the police, the speed of the rider exceeds 16 kilometers per hour. According to the relevant traffic regulations, the electric scooter has reached the speed limit of scooters and electric bicycles. Therefore, it is necessary to have a driver's license to get on the road, and the man riding the electric scooter. Did not realize this. At the same time, the local police seized four electric scooters for the same reason.
The Brescia police especially stressed that in order to ensure the safety of electric scooters, it is necessary to take the road.
With the popularization of shared electric scooters in Italian cities, due to the lag of relevant legislative work, many violations such as speeding riding of electric scooters, riding with two people, riding in the restricted area, etc. are common, and even traffic accidents are caused by excessive speed. This has led to the concerns of traffic managers and the call for legislation.
The Brescia traffic police punish the cyclists on the grounds that they need a driver's license to ride an electric scooter. The current law is rigidly placed on an electric scooter. It seems to be somewhat reluctant and irrational. After all, Italy has nowhere to get an electric scooter license. Obviously this is still a legal vacuum zone. Enforcement in a legal vacuum environment is inevitable.
