Important Information for E-Scooter Users

E-scooters Will Be Siezed and Crushed.

The City of Wolverhampton informs me that the Council are working with the police to remind people that e-scooters are illegal on roads, cycle lanes and pavements in Wednesfield and Wolverhampton, amid reports of an increasing number of electric vehicles in the city.

E-scooters can only be used in public in areas which are currently hosting a Government trial – these include parts of the West Midlands but, importantly, not Wolverhampton.

Anyone found riding an e-scooter in Wolverhampton could see their vehicle seized and crushed by the authorities, with police planning a series of days of action in the city to highlight the issue and to educate riders about the rules.
