Can electric scooters be on the road?
Electric scooters are a new type of transportation that has appeared in recent years. They are lightweight, compact, easy to drive, and inexpensive, and are favored by many young people. In fact, both electric scooters and balanced cars are models that are designed based on the balance of the human body. It is fair to say that there are many hidden safety hazards. Can electric scooters be on the road? Of course the answer is no. The following editors will give you answers.
According to the existing Road Safety Law, electric scooters do not have "right of way." Article 18 of the regulations stipulates that non-motor vehicles that should be registered according to law can only be driven on the road after being registered by the traffic management department of the public security organ. The types of non-motor vehicles that should be registered in accordance with the law shall be prescribed by the people's governments of provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities in accordance with local conditions. The external dimensions, quality, brakes, bells and night-light reflecting devices of non-motor vehicles shall meet the non-motor vehicle safety technical standards.
In addition, some electric scooters are faster than non-motorized vehicles and are dangerous without braking. At the same time, it is difficult to define responsibility for such vehicles in the event of an accident. The main body of responsibility in the traffic regulations is only "pedestrian, non-motorized and motor vehicles", and electric scooters are not among them. Therefore, people who want to drive an electric scooter on the road must know more about handling traffic accidents. If the relevant regulations strictly prohibit the electric scooters from being allowed to go on the road, do not be punished for violating the regulations.
Warm reminder: whether it is an electric scooter or a balance car, you must know some common knowledge about traffic safety of the balance car when using it. Only then can you know some driving regulations for similar models. At present, electric scooters and balance cars can drive in parks, scenic spots, communities and private places, but they are definitely not allowed to drive on the road.
