Jonathan Tolhurst Posted November 6, 2016 Share Posted November 6, 2016 Does anyone know if there a group that is actively lobbying for electric unicycles to be recognised as a legal form of transportation in the UK? If not, would anyone be potentially interested in participating in a group set up for this purpose? I know there is a petition on the UK parliament website, but realistically just getting people to sign a petition isn't going to change anything (especially if it's not huge numbers of people). I really believe that electric unicycles can be a viable form of personal transportation and that they have a number of distinct benefits over other forms of transportation. As with all forms of transportation, EUCs have some limitations which need to be considered and mitigated. It would be useful to construct a list of people, groups and government agencies/departments who should be lobbied, together with some high quality materials to facilitate lobbying (E.g. case studies for use, environmental impacts and how any potential risks could be mitigated). It may also be beneficial to try to improve public perception of EUCs, including highlighting the differences between EUCs from "hoverboards" which appear to be where a lot of the negative perception relating to EUCs appear to originate. In London there are very active/noisy cycling lobby groups, and it may be possible to learn from these groups on how to best lobby the relevant stakeholders?
