Waka Kotahi is consulting on whether or not it should renew its E-scooters (Declaration not to be Motor Vehicles) Notice 2018 which expires on 30th September 2023. This is the Declaration that had the consequence of allowing e-scooters to be ridden on footpaths.
There is a very short survey to complete by 5pm, 7th August: https://nzta.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9XjNKbpFLk1cJcW
Living Streets Aotearoa encourages opposing renewal of the current Declaration in its existing form and suggesting alternatives, such as declaring e-scooters to be cycles, or declaring e-scooters to be in their own class of vehicle with associated rules.
There is also a petition organised by the Disabled Persons Assembly at https://our.actionstation.org.nz/petitions/give-us-back-our-footpaths
