When Spymaster first starting selling electric powered transporters, like the E-Rider, over two years ago we wrote to the Mayor of London’s office and asked Mr Johnson to look at the fact that using these both on and off the pavement was illegal.
We received a reply directing us to Transport For London to take this matter further. TFL wrote to us stating that they were in contravention of the Highways Act of 1835 – yes that is correct 1835 and that this was the end of the matter.
Well it may have taken two years but it is nice to see that someone in office is finally in agreement that adhering to some laws 180 years after they were written is ‘hogwash’. Now maybe with Boris Johnson and TFL in agreement that lets hope that it does not take too long for them to allow such modes of transport and, let’s face it, massively fun ones at that.
As Boris so eloquently put it himself ‘if the oldsters can charge towards you on their terrifying chariots, the youngsters should be able to waft on their boards. Its intergenerational fairness’.
Now of course when Mr Johnson wrote about his in his weekly article in the Daily Telegraph and he called them liberating (which they most definitely are) this was picked up by the worlds press. When the BBC needed an expert to come and discuss this issue, of course they went to the company that has been selling them for the longest and sells the original and most reliable of them all SPYMASTER.
