Illegal e-scooter use is harming guide dogs and their owners

E-scooters are almost silent, which means that people with sight loss have little or no warning they are approaching. Blind and partially sighted people typically rely on hearing to navigate safely, which makes detecting and avoiding e-scooters riding on the pavement almost impossible. Will you sign the petition telling the Prime Minister to commit to actually enforcing laws around e-scooters so people with sight loss don’t suffer?

Unregulated e-scooters threaten the independence of people with sight loss. Guide Dogs UK is asking that the Prime Minister commit to:

– Launch a public information campaign to stop illegal use of e-scooters.
– Work with the police to make sure they are enforcing the law.
– Publish your plan on legislation.

Will you join the effort by signing the petition today?
