It is not being done. This is what I am saying. Could a circular be sent out by the Commissioner to each division to the effect that pending the introduction of the legislation then at least we could get them off footpaths. The reply to my parliamentary question said they are illegal in public places. This tells me they are illegal on roads as well. I do not belong to the lock them up and throw away the key brigade. Some people use e-scooters to get to work, including people employed in the Oireachtas. I ask that, at least in the short term, action be taken to get these scooters off footpaths.
