Road (& footpath!) legal in Qld at least, & when I asked, they said they've sold quite a few into NSW & haven't yet heard of anybody having problems with :police:.

They suggested that you go into TNSW (that's their name this week, isn't it ???) & ask for a ruling, & if thy say no, ask why, as e-scooters are legal in NSW & this can classify as a scooter as can be manually pushed!

Sorry, didn’t know they allowed them in Qld now.
E scooters are NOT legal in NSW.

Not yet...

Hundreds of them down here, also on a 12-month trail throughout Hobart City.  PITA, they get left at random spots all around the city, blocking footpaths and the like. They are allowed on footpaths....

Hi,
   They need a bell. Got a start when one whizzed past me the other day on a very narrow footpath.
Cheers

We had a go on Segways a couple of years ago, along the beachfront at Coolangatta. They were fun, too! ;D

They, by law, also have to have a bell fitted so you can warn anybody that you're coming up behind them, but, as the bloke running them said, Please don't use it, because people complain to Council about the bells dinging! ::)

From a UK perspective…

TOW NO! I towed a caravan with an electric car and it was a DISASTER – you’re still better off with diesel

Because you can always be sure of finding a working charger on a battlefield. Perhaps they have a special phone app for that.
