E-Scooter riders prosecuted by Transport for London after Tube ban

Commuters who bring e-Scooters on to London’s transport network are now being prosecuted and fined amid fears that the electric vehicles will burst into flames.Transport for London announced an e-Scooter and e-unicycle ban in December last year which was applied across buses, Tube trains, the Overground lines, and the tram network.It followed two safety alerts in quick succession, when an electric unicycle left behind on a Jubilee Line train caught fire in Stanmore and a District Line train had to be evacuated at Parsons Green when an e-Scooter burst into flames.Prosecutions of passengers caught flouting the new rule have now begun, with at least ten people already brought before a magistrate in London.
