Germany working on allowing electric skateboards and scooters

Germany is working on legalizing electric vehicles like skateboards, scooters and other forms of small electric transportation. This to relieve crowded city streets from cars.

In many foreign cities such as Vienna, San Francisco and Madrid scooters and skateboards with electric drives are already allowed and part of every day travel. They are banned in the Netherlands and Germany, but that is going to change quickly. According to Der Spiegel, traffic minister Andreas Scheuer wants to allow micro mobility.

Thanks to the introduction of electric skateboards, onewheel’s and scooters, motorists can park outside the city centers of large cities and thus emit emission-free locally to the center. An electric scooter is cheap and light and easily fits into the trunk of a car. In Germany, these means of transport can soon be used on bicycle paths and / or public roads at speeds up to 20 kilometers per hour.
