New rules for electric scooters in Poland. You won t go faster than 25 km / h

Electric scooters, which are becoming increasingly popular in Poland, will be covered by the new law. There are good and bad news.

Electric scooters are growing in strength. On the one hand, there are more and more private scooters on the streets, and on the other hand scooters rented for minutes are very popular. What's more, this trend is not only about Warsaw, but spreads all over Poland. In my native Bialystok I can see that the equipment is very popular.

There is a new bill. Electric scooters will be treated like electric bicycles.

Today, a new draft law on road traffic and an act on electromobility and alternative fuels have appeared. The Act clarifies the definition of vehicles, which, contrary to appearances, is very necessary. In the era of electrification, the border between a bicycle, a moped and a scooter is very fluid.

From now on, a bicycle is a vehicle up to 90 cm wide, moved by muscle strength, but electric drive activated by pedal pressure is acceptable. The drive can have a power of not more than 250 W and power supply with a voltage of no more than 48 V. The drive can not operate after exceeding a speed of 25 km / h.

Scooters are now "personal transport equipment". They can be up to 90 cm wide, 125 cm long and weigh up to 20 kg. They can be equipped with an electric drive operating on the same principles as in an electric bicycle. This means that we will not legally ride an electric scooter at speeds over 25 kg / h. Well, unless we accelerate the vehicle to a higher speed only using muscles.

It is worth noting that the definition of personal transport device also includes the so-called hoverboardy.

Importantly, you will be able to ride scooters on bicycle roads.

The dispute over bicycle paths ignites cyclists to redness, but they will have to accept that personal transport vehicles will also be allowed on the road for bicycles. This includes scooters and hoverboards.

At the same time, the Act clarifies the minimum age of a person using an electric vehicle. The age limit is 10 years because it is also the age limit for getting a bicycle card.

The new law sounds very good for scooter users. Cyclists may be dissatisfied, but it's time to accept that in 2019 there are also other personal transport vehicles in cities.
