License only for adults, helmet and insurance required, maximum speed thirty kilometers per hour We are heading towards a squeeze for scooters in the city. It is for this reason that, as Corriere della Sera writes, the Transport Committee in the Chamber is working on an ad hoc bill that aims, at least in essential lines, at the obligation of wearing a helmet, at speed limits and at the higher age to use what has become in a year and a half – just before the Covid emergency – the first vehicle for sharing mobility in Italy.
Scooters, here are all the new rules: driving license, insurance, speed limit
“A lot of news is coming”, says the Corriere. “On the sidewalks, scooters will only be carried by hand and will no longer be able to park (in this case hefty fines as for motorcycles, from 41 to 168 euros, with the possibility of removal). Speed limits will be introduced: 20 km per hour on cycle paths, 30 on urban roads, 6 km per hour in pedestrian areas and absolute ban on driving in the evening after sunset (with fines ranging from 50 to 250 euros). adults over 18 “. Although on this point an exemption is possible from the age of 14 but only in possession of a license. Finally, another novelty will be compulsory insurance. Scooters, everything is about to change.
