    Causes of your accidents

    Lol that is a good story! I have only had small ice'd over puddles last christmas and I remember clenching my arse, closing my eyes and praying and luckily I never came off on one of them, but I did have the same kind of thing happen but when mud instead of ice and that slip out from under you feeling is the worst!

    so i've had a bit of movement off one of my emails to the mp for cheshire west: Dear Mr CanningsThank you for contacting me. I must confess I'm unaware what the legalities are of unicycling but I have forwarded your concerns to Chief Inspector Simon Meegan of Northwich NPU to investigate.I'll be in touch with you as soon as I receive a reply Best wishes for now Mike AmesburyLabour MP for Weaver Vale ------------------------------ Dear Mr CanningsPlease see below a copy of an email I have received from Chief Inspector Simon Meegan. I have also forwarded your concerns David Gauke, Secretary of State for Justice with regards the legislative aspect of this, and will be in touch again once I have received a response. Best wishes for nowMike Amesbury MP...............................................................Good afternoon Mike, hope you are well.With regards to this enquiry, it is unusual and is the first one I have encountered in this area. Whilst I am sympathetic to your constituent's wider argument, I do have concerns about the safety of the individual and the public, operating this type of vehicle on either a pavement or road.In any event, they are illegal. They are self-balancing scooters and would require a licence, insurance and for it to be road registered and display a number plate. However, it can't be road registered as it currently is not type approved in the UK. If he is using it at night he will commit further Construction and Use offences regarding lighting (or lack of).Ultimately if he is seen using it, a constable in uniform can seize it for no insurance. He won't be able to get it back either, as it need to be road registered for it to be returned to the owner. However, on this occasion the PCSO has used his discretion and advised accordingly.As Mr. Cannings recognises, it is ultimately a legislative rather than an enforcement issue.I hope that assists.Best wishes, -------------------------------------------- It seems mike is trying to help and we're all of the opinion that its definitely illegal and its an issue of legislation so lets see.

    Its not only insurance thought its road tax also isn't it?
  9. It says it right there, he has already refunded and tried to help him source, I don't understand why you think that this forum is a place for raising disputes, its between ewheels and your friend not even you.

    I blasted off a couple of emails to a couple of MP's and and to be honest one of my main points wasn't "this isn't fair" or "why are we still basing our laws on horse and carriage laws" but more of okay fine have your laws, but give us the ability to abide by them and licence/insure the EUC's this way the government makes money, covers themselves to indemnity, looks like its been pro-active to hit its green targets that its set itself. I said the userbase for these wheels are not 15 year olds whipping round terrorizing the place, its adults that use them for not only enjoyment and getting around but for commuting also who would be willing to pay to insure/licence them if it meant we had a place to ride them legally. What is the cost to the tax payer? Nothing What is the cost of any extra policing? Nothing What is the cost of any accidents? Nothing if insured and if not then they are just in the same bucket as now

    It's a nice idea but they cover themselves with the highway code, The Road Traffic Act 1988 states: Then Highway Code rule 157: Vehicles prohibited from using roads and pavements 157. Certain motorised vehicles do not meet the construction and technical requirements for road vehicles and are generally not intended, not suitable and not legal for road, pavement, footpath, cycle path or bridleway use. These include most types of miniature motorcycles, also called mini motos, and motorised scooters, also called go peds, which are powered by electric or internal combustion engines. These types of vehicle MUST NOT be used on roads, pavements, footpaths or bridleways. Laws RTA 1988 sects 34, 41a, 42, 47, 63 & 66, HA 1835, sect 72, 82 AAATHE R(S)A sect 129
