Tuned e-scooter stopped by the police: it could even keep up with that on the country road

The police officers probably don’t see a model like this every day either: An e-scooter that can keep up with cars? It will be expensive for the owner of the tuned scooter.

Iserlohn – E-scooters have long been part of the street scene in big cities. The small electrically operated scooters usually manage 20 kilometers per hour and can be rented on almost every corner. That’s the norm. However, what police officers observed in North Rhine-Westphalia (Märkischer Kreis) has little to do with these conventional rental devices.

Tuned e-scooter: driver expects a hefty penalty

Even experienced patrol officers were amazed at the sight of a 23-year-old riding his e-scooter on the bike path and able to keep up with her car. A look at his own speedometer showed: The young man was traveling at around 50 kilometers per hour – far more than allowed. Even normal scooters can become dangerous*. According to the police, the incident happened on Friday (February 18) shortly before Iserlohn. When the vehicle was checked, it was also shown that the 23-year-old had not even extended the scooter: according to the officials, it could drive a full 85 kilometers per hour.

For such devices, however, there is no operating license for use on public roads in Germany. The young driver therefore faces criminal proceedings for driving without a license and a violation of the compulsory insurance law. But even older driver’s licenses eventually have an expiration date*. (mell) is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
