Police in Havering are cracking down on the illegal use of privately owned electric or ‘E–Scooters’ after a rise in reports across the borough.

On Tuesday, 30 March officers from Cranham, Hactons, Hylands and Upminster Safer Neighbourhood Teams worked in partnership with the Met’s Traffic Unit to conduct an operation targeting the illegal use of the E-Scooters.
Patrols were conducted in heavy footfall areas including high streets and stations and some residential streets. Officers spoke with members of the public and businesses highlighting the need for insurance to be in place for the vehicles to be used legally.

During the operation officers stopped three E-Scooters on the street after their riders were seen to be riding them in a public place.

Please note that The Road Traffic Act 1988 states that a person must not use a motor vehicle on a road or other public place unless a valid policy of insurance is in place.
