Do not do the police a miss service. What they are very good at and knowledgeable about are what constitutes a easy target. Those bikes are a easy target. Hope you get away with it and have fun. ;)

Looking at misterice's route he could tie on a ACAB cardboard number plate on and still not get nicked as there are no coppers there!

Yesterday there was a big wright up from yorkshire police informing people not to buy these bikes or scooters as they will be handing out 6 penalty points and confiscation.
They said people think they can rid to work or in parks which they can not unless reged plus tax and ins, our local Facebook is full of ads for them, all illegal.View attachment 89291View attachment 89292
There are around 5 specific areas where those Scooters are being legally trialled, but outside of those, they would make such an easy target as so obviously not allowed on public spaces :(
not illegal though - you could buy one without any problems and ride around your garden! ;)

The electric bikes are another matter I reckon. would a policeman want the hassle of stopping riders just on the off-chance?

There is no hassle to the policeman it's what they do. How many boxes can they tick simply by stopping one illegal electric bike and should it be legal then its just have a nice day off you go.

Police here dont want to get bothered with the nasty boys, real heavy crime, so they pick on simple things like electric bikes, bulb out on rear of car, young lads on m/bikes standing at a shop corner having a chin wag etc as easy to get there day bookings filled which looks like they have been doing there job.
