23% of Norwegians believe that a ban should be introduced on all use of electric scooters in Norway, according to a recent survey conducted by Tryg Forsikring and Trygg Trafikk.
Surprisingly many oppose electric scooters, communications consultant Torbjørn Brandeggen in Tryg Forsikring stated in a press release.
In the survey, which YouGov conducted just before Easter, there are several startling figures. In the age group 18 to 29, as many as 17% want a ban. The highest proportion is found in the group 40 to 49 years, with 27%.
“The fact that many people want a ban is still understandable. There has been a persistent level of disagreement around the use of electric scooters all the time, and the number of accidents has been high. Hundreds of users have been injured in accidents, and we have had fatal accidents,” Brandeggen said.
In January, it became known that the government would tighten the rules for electric scooters during the spring. The tightening of rules includes, among other things, a blood alcohol limit of 0.2, an age limit of 12 years, and a helmet requirement for children under 15 years of age.
