E- Scoot Safely and Follow The Rules

Electric Scooters are known as e-scooters but it is important to be aware that the law differs for privately owned e-scooters compared to those that can be hired in trial areas.

There is a trial running in Stafford where e-scooters can be hired through an operator called Ginger. There are certain rules that need to be followed when using one of these though, such as:

• To hire an e-scooter in Stafford you need to be over 18 and have a provisional, full drivers or motorcycle licence.
• They can only be used on a road or cycle path. They shouldn’t be ridden on the pavement.
• They cannot carry more than one person.
• Insurance provided covers scheme areas only.
• You must obey the Highway Code and ride with due care.
• You cannot allow anyone else to use the e-scooter as the insurance only covers the person hiring it.
• You will be prosecuted if you use one under the influence of drink or drugs.
• E-scooters should be treated as motor vehicles and if you don’t stick to the rules you can receive a fine and points on your licence.
• It is strongly recommended that riders wear a helmet and high-visibility clothing when using an e-scooter.

Privately-owned e-scooters are illegal to use on public roads, cycle lanes and pavements. They can’t be insured and can only be used on private land with the permission of the land owner. Riding a privately owned e-scooter in public can result in the e-scooter being seized, a fine and points being added to the rider’s licence.

Doxey Friends 

Doxey Friends is being held this Sunday afternoon when we will be offering table based craft activities and refreshments. Do come and join us and bring the children!

 

Please note that we are conscious of trying to keep us all safe during these times when the virus is still very active in Stafford. As a result we will be offering a restaurant/café style service with refreshments and crafts being brought to the table to minimise contacts. There will not be any floor toys available.
Thank you to all who attended the Doxey Litter Pick last month which was very successful!
If you have any worries or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
