May 16 - Government Publishes Consultation Paper On Regulation Of Personal Transporters

The Government has published a Consultation Paper on the Regulation of Personal Transporters.

The Government says it has been closely monitoring developments worldwide and particularly within Europe regarding the recent proliferation of e-devices, especially e-scooters.

A spokesperson expanded: “The appearance of this technology on our roads, public areas and pavements has seen countries, cities and municipalities grappling to understand and indeed decide how to legislate and regulate for these electric devices. Indeed, some countries have started to report injuries as a result, some very serious and even fatal in nature.

“Whilst Government welcomes alternative and more sustainable forms of transport, particularly the more environmentally friendly electric variety, Government has been conducting its own extensive internal review and wishes to gauge the public opinion on this very important matter. Although the Government welcomes different forms of transport, the Government is of the firm view that the general safety of our road users and pedestrians remain of predominant concern.

“The Government once again looks forward to engaging our community as we continue to safeguard our environment and encourage healthier lifestyles whilst we continue to improve our road and pedestrian safety.”

The Consultation Paper is available for download from the Government of Gibraltar – Laws of Gibraltar website on the following link:

The Government says that persons thinking of purchasing any variety of personal e-device for themselves or as a gift “should take careful note” that this review could lead to strict regulation and potential prohibition in part or in its entirety, as HMGoG will in due course be publishing rules for these devices.
