  1. or not, this time it is apparently a brand new version 2 model oscillating...
  2. Sure, what constitutes an EUC in the sense of the PLEV is precisely defined in the text. The point is how this European law is applied within the EU. To my understanding, states are obliged to make EUCs in the sense of the PLEV legal to operate in public. States are free to broaden the law, i.e. put less constraints on what an EUC constitutes, i.e. legalize more or other devices just as well. States are not free to make EUCs as defined in the PLEV illegal. That's to my understanding the point of the PLEV. It guarantees manufacturers that they can sell PLEV certified devices in all Europe and that their customers can legally operate them. It doesn't make everything which is not PLEV certified illegal by default. Which countries are you referring to, where EUCs can only be operated at or under 6km/h? I didn't count Germany, where this is indeed the case. I guess that's pretty much the case in each country of Europe. And sure, I counted Belgium where the speed limit at the time was 18km/h, but it seems that this is likely to change to a larger figure. I entirely agree with you if your point is that EUCs which go faster than 30km/h and neither need a permit nor a registration will not become legal in Europe. Though that depresses me not even a little bit.
  3. No laws, no punishment, I agree. That means you are saying they are legal. Good for us, just facts. I was so sure that you knew about punishments that happened for example in Germany, because I was so sure you were closely following the German thread and even commenting on the reports. I must be mistaken then. I also read about penalties experienced in Italy... If you really like to know, check out this thread: There seem to be at least six EU countries where EUCs have been legal since 2016 or so. And then there are those where it is not literally but effectively legal, like in France. And then there are those where you have some small chance to get a hefty fine or even the EUC seized, like Germany and Italy.
  4. We do. Then PLEV is not a regulation, but we don't care about the definition of words, do we? The PLEV regulates what states can or cannot do, specifically what they cannot outlaw. The freedom taken away here is the freedom of the states, not the freedom of the citizens. How do you happen to know it is not? To my understanding it is, but I am always happy to learn.
  5. EUCs are already legal in many European countries and that won't change at all. Some countries might have to open up their legislation to include the EUCs specified in the PLEV (e.g. increase the speed limit). The process is much more likely to broaden the number of legal devices than to narrow it. Your idea that law enforcement will become stricter because EUCs become legal is somewhat funny. I rather doubt that, at least on average.
  6. you have to admit that the Solowheel logo is much cooler than the InMotion logo and easily worth additional $300. It was probably also quite expensive to get it on the wheel And maybe it even works with the InMotion app.
  7. Given that most of us are not native speakers and lawyers, it might not be entirely clear what "exclusive agencies" is precisely referring to though.
  8. I think you still missed the point: PLEV will give a permission to use EUCs in the case when they are not permitted currently. That's what you are praying for should never happen?
  9. I feel so bad to be the one giving the bad news, but I can't help it.
  10. True. The European PLEV, if it becomes law, will require the states to permit their citizens to operate the specified EUCs in public space. That is a pretty scary type of regulation, if you think about it. But c'mon, Marty, you should be able to take it. I suspect so too. I can't imagine that the US Congress will constrain the states to legalize EUCs, ever.
  11. You didn't read the thread very carefully. The found metal chips were from a broken washer, but they did not cause the problem. Ah, and the board was loose, but that didn't cause the problem either, or maybe it did, we don't know for sure. I know, in the current version all problems are solved (no, I am not serious but sadly joking).
  12. I can't believe that InMotion has turned into a sect
  13. @Paddylaz, I assume you have seen this thread IIRC it's caused by a somewhat known motherboard failure/weakness.
  14. The runaway is not stable enough to be reliable all the time. I added a link above. True, as so often the devil is in the detail.
  15. LOL, mine are always falling over (either forward or backward) if I lean them upright against a wall lightly.
