Eggheads have crunched the numbers and the results are in: It's not just your dignity you lose with e-scooters, life and limb are in peril, too

Drunk on a bike is still a criminal offence as you've failed to comply with the Road Traffic Act, IIRC, which can result in you being disqualified from driving as well as criminal proceedings resulting in a fine of up to £2500 (depending on how wobbly you were).

Equally, the only place you can ride an electric scooter in the UK is on private land - they're banned on the road and on the pavements, with 6 points and a £300 fine if plod decides to collar you.

Not that this stops any of them, obvs
