Closed petition Allow electric assisted devices like hoverboards, E-skateboards and E-Scooters

I believe electric assisted devices like electric skateboards and hoverboards should be allowed in public as it's the future of mobility,

I was buying a device then realised that it wasn't legal,

This made me fustrated as i can't enjoy having a device that I wanted for months.

More details

I believe in order to make this legal people need to be over the age of 18 also wearing a helmet at all times when on the device unless they're on private grounds.

This will then make the devices safe to use as people will be mature enough to ride it in public areas.

Country's like America has allowed electric assisted devices like the hoverboard and electric skateboards with these similar rules.

This will then allow people to explore local areas or even ride to work with these devices.
