The Norwegian government is now allowing the municipalities and the police to impose a parking fee for those who don’t park electric scooters at designated places.
In a press release, the Ministry of Transport and Communications states that the fee is NOK 900.
The police can also impose simplified fines for violations of no-entry and no-use zones for small electric vehicles, such as electric scooters. The fine is NOK 1,300.
“It will be even clearer what is legal and what is not when it comes to the use of electric scooters. Therefore, there may now be zones where it is not allowed to park or use electric scooters and zones with certain speed limits. The municipalities themselves will introduce such zones,” Minister of Transport Knut Arild Hareide (KrF) noted.
Furthermore, the law on the rental of small electric vehicles on public land has also entered into force. That means that the municipalities now have the right to regulate the rental of electric scooters where the business is based on the electric scooters being parked on public land.
