Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
My intention is to legislate for e-scooters, in accordance with the Programme for Government. Department officials have drafted the necessary changes to primary legislation as part of the forthcoming Road Traffic Bill. The Bill has completed pre-legislative scrutiny and is expected to come before the Oireachtas shortly. As with all legislation, it is not possible to provide a definitive timeframe.
When the Bill is enacted, it will give the Minister for Transport powers to make regulations for the use of e-scooters.
