A regulation on the use of electric scooters has entered into force after being published in the Official Gazette.
Since they offer a way to bypass traffic, one of the worst aspects of living in Turkish metropolises, there has been an increase in the use of e-scooters and the number of companies operating in this field in the last two years.
The authorities had been working on the rules over the use of e-scooters for a year with the increasing widespread use of these vehicles.
After an 18-year-old high school student who was using an electric scooter died in a traffic accident in Istanbul last year, debates regarding the safety of these vehicles in traffic have been taken to the Turkish Parliament.
Finally, a regulation has been enacted that sets some restrictions on the use of e-scooters.
