Last sentence of the article: "Londoners will be encouraged to only use rental e-scooters as privately owned e-scooters remain banned on public roads". No, only bicycles with electric motors are allowed on public roads (for reasons which are not entirely clear or logical). Scooters with electric motors whether privately or publicly owned are not allowed on public roads OR on pavements, full stop.Bottom line: there should be no e-scooters except on private land - not on pavements, not on the highway. They are too fast to be treated as children's scooters. And they are very dangerous when their small wheels hit pebbles on pavements or the road and then jam.
