Two days after the alcohol limit was introduced for riding electric scooters, a young man in Gjøvik lost his driver’s license for driving an electric scooter while drunk.
Just before midnight on Friday night, the police in Gjøvik stopped a man who was driving with a passenger standing on the back of the e-scooter. It turned out that the driver, a man in his 20s, was under the influence of alcohol.
“He has been reported for driving under the influence and has been deprived of his driver’s license,” operations manager Therese Bylterud in the Innlandet Police District told NTB.
This is not the first time someone has been caught driving an electric scooter while drunk in the district.
“This is the second case that I know of in our police district after the alcohol limit was introduced,” Bylterud stated.
Already on Wednesday night, the same day as the new rules came into force, a man in his 40s was arrested for driving an electric scooter while under the influence in Hunndalen in Gjøvik.
