[COLOR=black][FONT="Arial"]If the city or the police does not sort this problem out soon, or if they don’t do anything to keep the e-scooters off the pavements, I will consider contacting my lawyer to see if I can reduce my taxes to the city by way of deductions or otherwise.

I am a lawyer. I have been compiling a stack of video clips from the streets of Zurich where escooters drive on the pavements in order to support my case one day when I will need them.
You'll be consulting yourself then, good to know.

Those breaking the law are probably all foreigners.

Deport the lot of them!

But hang, draw, and quarter them first.

Re: electric scooter - rules?

The police of the city of Zurich informed:

2018 the police recorded 6 accident with electric sccoters.
This year so far 30, 28 with injured persons. In 27 instances the scooter rider was mainly at fault.

Since Ausgust 1st 2019 the police keeps statistics on fines issued to electric scooter riders. So far 67 riders were fined for riding on the sidewalk.

The police also collected 51 scooters out of the river Sihl and Limmat.

Just out of interest: What did the equal opportunity desk of the city of Zurich think about your grievances?

(And what type of editor are you using to copy and paste your stuff? I havent seen that sort of a HTML mess since the 90s... )

I wonder how much all those rentals that did pop up everywhere are responsible for the growth in accidents and how much of those in the rivers are rentals since I see those things really laying everywhere like their just some piece of trash.

Re: electric scooter - rules?

For any of you guys and gals out there that have an electric scooter, do any of you have or ridden the Segway ES1 (max 20km/250watt) ?

https://www.galaxus.ch/en/s3/product...anding-6816548

Galaxus has them for about 350 and seems like a pretty reasonable deal and appears to be legal as well.

I would just like to ride it around my farm.

It specifically mentions that it does not have road allowance.

Re: electric scooter - rules?

Hay John
Per your earlier posting(http://www.swissroller.ch/swissrolle...%20gesetze.htm)
And your comment , would you say it is therefore a good idea to get one?

I will be in the countryside of Vaud, and need something with an assist since its an hour walk and I have health issues.
Its either this or an electric bike
In fact, any thoughts on the pros and cons of either?
I like the idea of being able to take the scooter with me and get a bus if I'm not feeling up to a ride. But having more space with bike packs is tempting too.

Also, according to your link Vaud doesn't require licencing or plates, so no cost there.

Any brand you favor? I'm big on whatever has the best safety rating
Thanks from a non mechanical savvy chick
