PXID industrial design company reminds: electric scooters do not have the right of way
Electric scooters do not have the right of way. They can only be used for entertainment in some communities or public places, parks, and closed roads for entertainment. They cannot be used as a means of transportation. Article 74 of the "Implementation Regulations on Road Traffic Safety of the People's Republic of China" stipulates: "Pedestrians shall not have the following behaviors: (1) Use skateboards, roller skates and other sliding tools on the road." Therefore, it is illegal to drive electric scooters and balance vehicles on any public road, including roads, motorized vehicle lanes, non-motorized vehicle lanes, and sidewalks. If there is an illegal act, in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Road Traffic Safety Law of the People’s Republic of China, a warning or a fine of not less than RMB 5 and not more than RMB 50 may be imposed. In addition, the current electric scooters and balance bikes on the market are different from ordinary bicycles. Some do not have accelerators and brakes and rely solely on the control of the cyclist's body tilt. If the control is not good, it is easy to fall. Some electric scooters themselves are of substandard quality. In addition, cyclists have a weak sense of traffic safety. They often encounter illegal phenomena such as occupying motor lanes, changing lanes at will, turning around, running red lights, etc., which can easily cause traffic accidents and hinder them. The normal passage of other vehicles has affected the orderly and smooth flow of road traffic.
