The government will not “hurry” to change the law of riding e-scooters drunk, despite a drunk rider who gets serious injuries after falling from one.

Auckland’s Amy Gianfrancesco broke her neck, tipped her tooth and remained with serious bruises after falling off a Lime e-scooter. She had been drinking alcohol before the incident.

She now calls for better rules and suggested e-scooters should be “locked” at night so people who drank could not use them.

However, Associated Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter said that e-scooters offered real benefits and she wanted to wait until the Lime scooter was completed before checking for further regulation was necessary.

“I do not want to rush to override e-scooters and wait for the trial to run its course so we have data and experience from reality to base our decisions,” says Genter.

“Under time, I would like to encourage people not to use e-scooters without regard.

“E-scooter users should be aware that they are not invincible and to continue carefully.”

Currently, e-scooter riders can not be charged to surplus spirits alcohol as scooters are under 50cc, a police spokesman said.

Association Secretary Julie Anne Genter says she waits until Lime’s e-scooter trial is over to determine if more legislation is needed.

However, there were opportunities for riders to be affected by threat or ruthless behavior.

New Zealand’s Transport Agency Said It Strongly

Its traffic safety chief Harry Wilson said that e-scooters became a more popular mode of transport and needed to be used safely.

“As is the case with bicycles, electric bikes, skateboards and other recreational appliances, while there is no specific legislation governing the use of these devices by people affected by alcohol or drugs, the current rules require users to work these devices in a careful and thoughtful manner, “he said.” 1949. “Fewer users of e-scooters and other similar devices may be subject to a number of crimes, and the NZ Transport Agency strongly opposes this practice.” [19659002] Matt Lowrie, founder of urban planning publication Greater Auckland, said drinking alcohol and then drove a Lime scooter “dumb”.

“It’s the same with a problem when you’re drinking alcohol and trying to use a vehicle or machine, says Lowrie.

“There [are] inherent dangers.”

But, with rules like mandatory helmets when driving Lime e-scooters, it could only prevent use, “said Lowrie.

People had to be careful about what rules were taken because they could have more negative transport effects, he said.

“More people are likely to drive or use any other form of transportation that can contribute to overload or may have more emissions.”

Police and glue have come into contact for further comments.
