Electric scooter law in QLD
The Queensland Government has recently passed legislation to allow electric scooters to be used on roads, footpaths and bike paths. Electric scooters do not require registration or third party insurance, but they do have to be fitted with a speed limiting device. This means that they cannot go faster than 20km/h, which is the same speed limit as bicycles.
