E-Rideable User Survey

Are you an electric rideable user?

Electric scooters, electric skateboards, self balancing wheels and similar devices have become very popular, more available and more affordable in recent years.

We recognize that times are changing and the road rules in WA need to catch up to the rapidly evolving technology we're seeing out on our roads and paths.

We're working on developing a framework to regulate these kinds of devices and are hoping to get some information from the people who are already using these devices, or intend to use them, so we can better understand the who, what, where, when and why and make sure the framework we develop will keep everyone safe.

1. Take the survey below to tell us how you use your device.

2. Use the mapping tool to share areas in WA you've found work well or are problematic for using your e-Rideable.

These will be open for comment until Monday 10th May 2021

A table with two columns. One Column has images of devices which are considered e-Rideables. This includes e-skateboards, e-scooters, hoverboards, e-wheels, e-unicycles, e-skates etc. The second column is devices which are not considered e-rideables. This column contains an image of a segway and an electric bike.

Once we've had a chance to hear your feedback and better understand how you use your devices, we will have a second consultation online with yourselves and everyone else who might be affected, to give feedback towards the proposed framework.

Check out the FAQs in the right panel for more information about why we're surveying the community and how we'll be using your feedback. Make sure you click the follow project button for updates!

Electric Rideable Use Areas

3 months

We're relying on you to help us understand what is or isn't working with infrastructure, amenities, speeds, shared path use, courtesy, and whatever else influences the use of your e-rideable devices. 

Show us the areas in WA that you've either found need improvement or that work well when using your e-rideable using the two pin options.

Examples could be:

  • Maybe it's an area where the paths are uneven and feels unsafe
  • Somewhere you think there's a particularly high volume of path traffic
  • Somewhere your route is disconnected
  • Frequent roadworks
  • Where you've noticed people zooming along much faster than they should
  • A location with a really ideal path width
  • Somewhere the Local Government has created separation of path users

  The list goes on! Now over to you.. drop a pin and write a comment!
