E-Rideable Device Framework Community Consultation
Closes 27 August 2021
The Road Safety Commission is seeking community feedback about aspects of the proposed regulatory framework for E-Rideable devices in Western Australia.
E-rideable devices have skyrocketed in popularity recently as they have become more available, more affordable and are being seen as a viable transport option. Currently, the vast majority of the devices being used are illegal, as only low powered motorised scooters are presently defined in WA legislation, so this new framework will formally regulate their use in WA.
While e-bikes aren’t considered an “e-rideable” these devices are likely to share the same paths as bikes, e-bikes and scooters and therefore the bike riding community has the opportunity to contribute on aspects of the proposed E-Rideable regulations.
This consultation consists of a survey and an optional interactive mapping tool to highlight areas of interaction between E-Rideable users and other path/road users that are either of concern or shared zones that function well.
