The woman ran out of battery and was advancing “barely” on the highway – between San Pedro and Estepona – propelling herself with her legs
The Road Safety Law makes it clear: it is forbidden to circulate with personal mobility vehicles on motorways, highways or interurban roads. However, the driver who was intercepted by the Civil Guard on June 15 while driving an electric scooter on the AP-7, between San Pedro de Alcántara and Estepona, was either unaware of this prohibition or ignored it.
That day there were numerous calls that followed one another to the Civil Guard. A patrol from the Benemérita de Marbella Traffic Detachment went to the AP-7, which was able to verify that the woman was circulating “on a minimum shoulder on the left side of the road.” In addition, she was exhausted since the battery of the scooter had run out, so she “was hardly advancing by propelling herself with her legs” -notes a note from the Civil Guard-, to which was added the high temperatures that were recorded .
The agents proceeded to intercept her and move the woman along with her vehicle off the highway, being able to verify that she had traveled 12 kilometers from the AP-7.
As the circulation of this type of vehicle is expressly prohibited by highways and highways in the Road Safety Law, the Civil Guard proceeded to denounce the driver of the scooter
