What is the Balance Between Policy, Safety, and Personal Electric Transportation?

It’s Electric! has been in heavy discussions lately about Personal Electric Transportation and the policies that govern them. In this week’s episode, Afeez is joined by Terenig Topjian to talk about how the laws being considered makes sense, how they don’t, and how they could be improved upon. He also stresses the importance of basing policy on actually data, and why using existing bike laws as a precedent may not be such a bad idea.   What rideable policy concerns and voter ID laws have in common Do we even have a safety problem? Are bike laws applicable for rideables? Should we be measuring power or speed for regulatory purposes? Show us the data!   “Are we applying car logic to this problem?” “When you pass a law, it’s usually because there is a problem and you want to address it” “Why are we comparing these things to cars? We should be comparing them to bicycles” “Speed is what dictates safety and danger” “Mobility should be a human right”   More Rideables www.rideables.org   Want more Afeez?   Instagram https://instagram.com/afeezkay?utm_source=ig_profile_share&igshid=1b6o45rhy44lk YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/afeezk Twitter https://twitter.com/Afeez_Kay   Interested in testing out an electric vehicle? https://www.teslarentals.co.uk/#rent
