glorat Posted August 29, 2016 Share Posted August 29, 2016 Looks like yet another country, this time my country of residence, has decided to legislate the use of EUCs. The most useful English article seems to be this one: http://en.people.cn/n3/2016/0826/c90000-9106031.html As far as I can tell, the concern is more about its use on the roads, which, frankly, on Shanghai roads is asking for trouble anyway. I suppose their use on pavements are de-facto banned anyway but then again, you frequently see motorised scooters and bikes on the pavements all the time. What is perhaps a little interesting to me is the penalty. The fine ranges from 5 RMB to 50 RMB. According to one Chinese source, if you get caught using it on the road, it's a 25 RMB penalty (about $4) and if you are caught on the pavement, it is 5 RMB (about $1). Now I only use my EUC on wide and mostly empty pavements anyway so it seems that if 5 RMB is the worst I can be penalised, that seems a risk that is no worse than all the other scooters on the pavement... Any other EUC riders in Shanghai/Beijing here? How do you react to the ban? 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
