Thank you to everyone who provided feedback about how the ACT Government could amend ACT road transport laws to allow electric scooters (e-scooters) and similar devices to travel legally in the nation’s capital.

Canberrans were invited to have their say by:

Your feedback helped us establish a regulatory framework for these devices. We used the feedback to ensure that key safety and accessibility concerns raised by the community were factored into the regulatory framework.

What we we looked at:

We heard from the Canberra community their views on the discussion paper to help determine what appropriate regulation for these devices should look like.

The ACT Government was particularly interested in community views on:

  • the maximum speed at which the device should be able to travel
  • what road and road related areas it is appropriate for these devices to travel on
  • whether there should be a limitation on who may use these devices.
