I can see a nightmare coming for anyone unfortunate enough to be whacked by one of these machines being driven by a redbull-charged teenager. Who does one sue?
They are electric powered bicycles with pedal assistance and as such appear
to be within the law. However Segways and self balancing hoverboard things have suddenly been made illegal mainly for the way they were being used. Like those mini motos the irresponsible activities of the numpties these things attract usually results in an adverse public opinion. Look at the bad publicity drones now attract.
I imagine you'd have to take a civil action against the owner/rider, however if they're a gobby "I know my rights" teenager they won't have anything to pay you with anyway.
Mind you that in itself could be a business opportunity, selling insurance for commission.
Disability pavement scooters 4 mph, don't need a license or insurance (however there is a move to remedy that) not a bad thing in my view.
When someone in the family got one a few years ago it was spelt out how you could be sued if you ran into someone or caused an accident so we were frightened into buying it.
