THE Queensland Government has announced a host of reforms to improve the regulation of e-scooters.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the Personal Mobility Device Safety Action Plan – developed in consultation with the Government’s Personal Mobility Device Safety Reference Group – details short, medium and long term goals.
“It’s hard to miss how successful the uptake of e-scooters has been here in Queensland,” Mr Bailey said.
“E-scooters are an emerging form of transport and they aren’t going anywhere.
“That’s why it’s important we have a plan on how we improve safety for e-scooter riders and for those who use our cycleways, footpaths and roads,” he said.
E-scooters have gained momentum on the Fraser Coast, with a six-month trial of a commercial e-scooter service launched in Hervey Bay last year.
However, public opinion on e-scooters is often divided.
