If you’re an e-scooter fan you’re now one step closer to legally riding them around the streets of Saskatchewan.
SGI has announced new regulations that gives municipalities the choice to allow e-scooters on public roads.
“These regulations give significant consideration to safety, to help ensure people can ride e-scooters while minimizing risk,” Don Morgan, Minister responsible for SGI, said. “While municipalities have always had the option to allow e-scooters on sidewalks and walking paths, these new regulations serve public demand while providing municipal authority for additional bylaws.”
The new regulations will govern the use of motorized vehicles that can’t go any faster than 32 kilometres per hour.
SGI said the regulations focus on e-scooters only, and other vehicles like one-wheels and hoverboards aren’t included at this time. Those could be looked at in the future SGI said.
