Canarian weekly:

COUNCIL ORDERS THE REMOVAL OF SCOOTERS OBSTRUCTING STREETS IN CORRALEJO.

The Ayuntamiento La Oliva, the local council of La Oliva, have published images of the Local Police collecting electric scooters from the streets of Corralejo in Fuerteventura, that have been obstructing public roads or pavements.

The use of scooters is one of the most controversial topics for residents and tourists across the Canary Islands, who’d rather see them removed from the streets for good as they are dangerous to both pedestrians and users.

Many are also calling for the Police to enforce the rules of use when people are riding them in areas not permitted, i.e., pedestrian walkways, pavements, and promenades, and for using mobile phones and not wearing helmets.

There have already been several cases reported of people being hurt when hit by scooters and by some riders being seriously injured in accidents on the roads. This isn’t surprising as the roads are complicated enough for tourists in rent-a-cars, but on scooters with no protection!

As much as want to applaud the La Oliva council for ordering their temporary removal, which incidentally scooter companies do every night to relocate them and charge the batteries, what will it take before rules and fines are enforced… some unfortunate holidaymaker to lose their life? We hope not.

Radio Sintonia:

In search of a responsible use of electric scooters.

The City Council of Pájara promotes a campaign in search of a responsible use of electric scooters. The Local Police has removed more than 150 vehicles of this type improperly parked in recent weeks.



The collaboration between the Department of Security and Emergencies and the Local Police aims to carry out the scheduled actions, which began a few weeks ago through the dissemination of informative videos on social networks and media.

In the town of Pájara, the Local Police has already initiated sanctioning measures, which has resulted in the withdrawal of more than 150 electric scooters that were parked incorrectly in the municipal streets during the last weeks.

Raimundo Dacosta, the councilor in charge of Security and Emergencies, underlines the relevance of this type of initiative to ensure both the safety of the various modes of transport that share public space and that of pedestrians.

The City Council will continue to implement actions in relation to road safety. These measures will include the creation of awareness videos, as well as the interaction of the Local Police with educational centers through talks and other proposals.

The councilor emphasizes the effort made by the Consistory to strengthen the team of the Local Police and to coordinate similar projects with the Civil Guard and the Canarian Police.

Once this awareness campaign is over, punitive actions will be carried out aimed at scooter users who fail to comply with established regulations.
