RSA Insurance : Over half of Brits agree that e-scooters are making our roads more dangerous, according to MORE THAN

08/31/2021 | 10:22am EDT
  • Two in five (40%) Brits agree* that they feel more anxious when there are e-scooters on the road, with just over three in ten (31%) saying they've witnessed an accident involving an e-scooter colliding with a car or pedestrian**
  • Over 3 in 5 (62%) of respondents who have used an e-scooter in the past 12 months agree* that they are aware of the safety rules and regulations involved with riding an e-scooter

Whether driving, cycling, walking, or scootering, how we use our roads is changing. With the popularity of electric scooters on the rise, new research from insurer MORE THAN shows that two in five (40%) Brits agree* to feeling more anxious when they see increasing numbers of e-scooters being used on the road, with over half (56%) of Brits agreeing* that e-scooters are making roads more dangerous.

While MORE THAN sees the benefits of e-scooters as a convenient and eco-friendly way to travel shorter distances, it's crucial that they are used safely and within the law to avoid putting riders and other road users at risk of injury. However, the research found that only 28% agree* that there is enough information available on how to ride an e-scooter safely.

In the UK, over 30 areas - including London, Newcastle, Nottingham, York - are operating e-scooter rental schemes to help people get around. Currently, only e-scooters ridden through these government-backed trials can be used on public roads (except motorways), while the use of private e-scooters on public roads, cycle lanes or pavements could incur a fine, penalty points or confiscation.

Despite this, MORE THAN's research found that 83%** of Brits have seen e-scooters riding along the pavement, with over just one in five (21%) of those saying that they've seen this occur 'very often'. Just over three in ten (31%)** also said they've witnessed an accident involving an e-scooter colliding with a car or pedestrian.

When asking those who have used e-scooters in the last 12 months, the survey found that 63% of Brits agree* to being aware of the safety rules and regulations around riding them. With the government currently considering where the law should stand on electric scooters in the future, MORE THAN's research highlights the need for a clear regulatory framework around their use.
