Yes. I think anything that’s too heavy (eg 150kg) would pose a danger if operated in the same way as a pedestrian and should be registered. However, a 20kg scooter is fine as it doesn’t pose a danger to pedestrians if the rider falls off somehow (it will stop very quickly).
I don’t agree completely. They should be legalised, but should be allowed to operate on small roads (provided they follow the same laws as cyclists are required to) and bike paths where they are separated from the main stream of traffic. There are several instances in Adelaide CBD, where an (eg) electric skateboard or scooter would be safely able to be operated on a separated bike path.
