Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Road Safety Authority's review of current practice and safety implications of electric personal mobility devices was submitted to me in late June.

The publication of the report is a matter for the Road Safety Authority, in consultation with my Department, once I have made a decision on the way forward in relation to electric scooters. Until then, the report forms part of the deliberative process and will not be published until this has concluded.
