This Week's 'Picture News' Assembly & Activities

Week Commencing 21st June 2021
Focus: Should e-scooters be allowed on our roads?

The electric scooters, also known as e-scooters, are now available to rent in selected areas of London as part of a one-year scheme to measure their feasibility. As part of the trial, conducted by TFL (Transport for London) and London councils, the scooters are banned on pavements and limited to 15.5mph. Privately owned e-scooters remain illegal on most roads and cycle lanes due to a law dating back to the 1800s.


British Value: Rule of Law

There are laws in place so that people use e-scooters safely. If e-scooters become more popular in the future, laws may have to change to protect members of the public.
