Time and again we receive questions about e-scooters. Where am I allowed to ride? What do I have to pay attention to when I ride? Do I have to wear a helmet? To name just a few. This has prompted us as a manufacturer to create a large e-scooter infographic with all the important facts, laws and exciting developments for e-scooters with road approval on the German market.
At the moment, every e-scooter fan has to painstakingly search for information one by one on the Internet, and after visiting what feels like 100 websites, you've already forgotten what you read at the beginning. To put an end to this, we have put together an e-scooter infographic for you.
The big e-scooter infographic
How has the Corona pandemic changed individual transport in Germany?
A quick trip to the bakery, shopping, dropping off a package at the post office or driving to work: These everyday routes were already ideal for e-scooters in times before Corona. While in a survey a year ago a good fifth* (24.3 percent) of Germans "definitely" or "probably" wanted to buy an e-scooter, 34.8 percent can now already imagine buying one. Men (41.2 percent) and potential buyers between the ages of 18 and 29 (43.9 percent) and between the ages of 30 and 49 (40.1 percent) are particularly interested.
What do I have to consider when driving an e-scooter in Germany?
Before the first ride and after the purchase of your e-scooter, you will inevitably have to deal with the topic of insurance. What you need to insure your e-scooter can be found in the section "How to insure your e-scooter".
In the section "E-scooters in public transport" you will find all the basic information on whether and how you can take your e-scooter with you on public transport. You will also find the answer to the question of whether you can take your e-scooter on a plane.
We have also devoted a lot of attention to alcohol consumption. No, not what you think. We give an overview of the penalties you can expect if you ride an e-scooter under the influence of alcohol, because unfortunately there is still too little awareness and clarity about what is allowed and what is not.
