Based on the input from FERSI members, this FERSI paper presents the legal status, usage and safety of e-scooters in 18 European countries. E-scooters are allowed in most of these countries. However, their legal status differs, e.g. related to the position on the road, the maximum speed, and helmet obligation. Many countries are working on more targeted or more elaborate legislation. The objective information about numbers, safety, users and their behaviour is scarce.
