This may require their re-classification so that they are not considered “personal mobility devices” 3) Additionally, helmets should be required when using any of these motorized vehicles, whether E-scooters or E-bikes – as is already required for motorcycles. 4) Cash payment devices should be designed in such a way that they cannot easily be vandalized.
