‘A Practical Guide to the Law and Regulation of E-Bikes and E-Scooters’ by Kane Simons
The law regarding electric scooters and electric bikes is often misunderstood. This book aims to set out the law and regulations that govern their use in a simple and helpful manner. It considers the practical issues that might arise should an electric scooter or bike be involved in an accident, with a focus on negligence, illegality and insurance.
The book is primarily written with personal injury practitioners in mind but will also be helpful to criminal lawyers, regulatory lawyers and members of the public looking to understand the status of electric scooters and electric bikes under the law of England and Wales.
