    Re: UK plans legal e-Scooter and medical drone test regions

    Just painting a bit of road don't make it a cycle path, at least not one car drivers will respect.
    You need a curb at least 4 inches tall to deter car drivers from going where they do not belong,,,, and vice versa.
    And i hope they also put a speed limit on the scooters and E-bicycles, here it is 25 km/h as those are supposed to share the bicycle paths with those guys and the slow mopeds.
    And all of them have nothing to do in car lanes otherwise, not even if you are wearing spandex and think you are all that.
    Lesser things to keep traffic separated will not happen / work before the human element of transport are completely removed.

    If they were serious about fixing congestion, then the answer is to roll out motorcycle/scooter lanes to encourage people to switch..

    British roads just aren't built for something like that

    Re: UK plans legal e-Scooter and medical drone test regions

    The problem around Cambridge with e-Scooters is almost entirely down to riders going through red lights, same as regular cyclists, but most pedestrians know how to dodge pedal cycles OK - ebikes are becoming a problem too as they're going a lost faster (modifyied 'off road only' ones being quite prevalent)
