Interesting headline in the Echo announcing the advent of the e-scooters for hire.

I am sure your readers certainly here in Poole will be surprised about this as we have been dodging dozens of these on a daily basis on our pavements for most of this year.

I am sure the riders were not aware that these were illegal (or were they?). The use certainly needs to be monitored and if necessary policed.
