Scooters with seats are now banned in Abu Dhabi, according to the emirate’s transport authority.
In a recent post, the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) showed three types of seated scooters that are prohibited in the capital. Only bicycles and e-scooters are allowed.
Authorities in Abu Dhabi recently conducted a mass awareness campaign on the new rule while giving cyclists and e-scooter riders in the capital free helmets.
According to the ITC, cyclists and e-scooter riders must use their vehicles on designated lanes, or on side roads in places where there are no cycling paths.
“And they must stay on the far right-hand side of the road … and pavements dedicated to the use of bicycles,” according to ITC.
Cyclists must obey road rules, wear proper safety gear like protective helmet and reflective clothing, and observe a speed limit of 20km per hour.
