Police crack down on e-scooter offences in Newport

Written on August 25, 2021

Police in Newport said they will deal with e-scooter offences “robustly” as they see an increase in usage.

Two more section 59 warning notices have been handed out over the past week to riders of e-scooters in the town.

Apart from trial schemes organised by the Government in some areas, it is against the law to use a privately owned e-scooter.

If you use an e-scooter illegally, you could face a fine or get penalty points on your licence, or the e-scooter could be impounded.
