ACSO in U.K. calls for mandatory insurance of e-scooters

  • Date: 07/25/2022

The Association of Consumer Support Organisations (ACSO) has called for e-scooters to be legalised so that an insurance framework can be developed around the micromobility vehicles’ safe use on UK roads.

In its latest report – published today (25 July 2022) – ACSO laid out a 10-step plan for the safe and effective legalisation of e-scooters.

In point six of the plan, ACSO said that e-scooters must be insured as part of the legalisation process. It explained: “Accident data underlines the need for compulsory insurance. Failure to insure e-scooter riders risks a failure to compensate other road users for their injuries.”
