Kick Style Electric Scooter (e-scooters)
Bill or Act:
Highway Traffic Act (HTA)
Summary of Proposal:
MTO is strongly committed to promoting the highest standards of safety for all Ontarians who travel on our roads, including drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians. Trends and technology are evolving, with new forms of vehicles such as e-scooters entering the market.
MTO is interested in new and environmentally-friendly vehicles, however, it is important that new vehicles are constructed with appropriate safety features to allow safe integration with all other road users and all road users are following the rules of the road.
As a result, MTO is soliciting feedback to inform the development of a regulatory and policy framework regarding the use of e-scooters.
For details on the ministry's proposals, please see the attached. We invite you to submit comments on these proposal for MTO consideration.
