So they cant use scooters on the roads nor the pedestrian sidewalks. I assume bike lanes is OK, what happens when (as is always the case) the bike lane runs out?

Good. It’s about time. These things are a bloody nuisance and a danger to everyone.

They are uninsured, and if they hit a small child or old person could seriously injure or kill them.

Let’s see the other islands take charge of this problem.
