E-scooters – important messages buried

Yesterday Transport Minister Rachel Maclean MP dealt with two written questions on what the government is doing to raise public awareness that the use of privately owned escooters is and will remain illegal. Written questions are, in my view at least, slightly obscure and hardly the best channel through which important public messages would be likely to reach a broad audience. So while her messages (at these links 97467 & 97468) are definitely important, accurate and timely, it is a little disappointing that they are, frankly, buried in the sort of Parliamentary minutiae that really only policy nerds (like me) might pick up on.
