Electric scooters that can travel up to 20 kilometers per hour are not allowed on public roads. The Consumer Authority now requires labeling.
“We have noticed that several dealers do not disclose this important limitation,” says Jo Gjedrem, department director for transport at the Consumer Authority.
He believes that dealers who fail to disclose this are in violation of the Marketing Act as it is to be considered misleading marketing.
Therefore, 26 dealers of such scooters are now receiving a letter from the Consumer Authority asking them to specify whether the scooter can be used on public roads or not, and to ensure that consumers receive all necessary information about other use restrictions of these scooters.
Gjedrem also warns that the audit will follow up on checks at the dealers.
