focus on the improper use of personal mobility vehicles | Palma City Council

The campaign in Palma against the misuse of electric scooters is leading to wave of fines.
The Local Police have put the focus on the improper use of personal mobility vehicles and in October fined a total of 450 users for riding on the pavements or in pedestrianised areas.
Four cyclists have also been fined.

Based on neighbourhood complaints the police controls were set up in the most conflictive areas of the city.
The main mission of the campaign has been to prevent the circulation, parking and any improper use of pavements and pedestrian-only spaces by any vehicle, but with special attention to personal mobility vehicles.

The most common offences involving scooters were also checked: not wearing a reflective waistcoat, riding with headphones plugged in and not respecting the authorised direction of traffic.
