E-scooters trialled in Barnstaple
The Department for Transport are set to run approved e-scooter trials across the UK, and a fleet is now available in Barnstaple as of Wednesday 17th May.
Riders must be at least 16 years old and hold at least a provisional driving license. Scooters will be prevented from going into wholly pedestrian areas or onto major roads using geofencing technology. The maximum speed limit is 15.5 miles per hour.
A launch event took place at The Square between 10am and 3pm.
