Drivers, one more thing you may soon have to watch out for.
The Ford government plans to run a five-year pilot that allows electric scooters on provincial roads.
Currently, it’s illegal because the province says the vehicles don’t currently meet government safety standards.

The Ministry of Transportation says the proposed pilot would allow e-scooters on roads where bicycles can operate, except on provincial highways.

Drivers must — be at least 16, are not allowed to have passengers, and the e-scooters cannot go faster than 32 km/h.

Several groups representing the disabled have raised concerns about the proposed pilot, asking the province to study the safety risks.
