Green Party NI welcomes movement on e-bikes

Monday 11 May 2020
Green Party MLA Rachel Woods has welcomed Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon's announcement on e-bike legislation, due in the Assembly tomorrow (Tuesday 12 May).  
 
Rachel Woods MLA said: ”I'm glad this situation is set to be rectified after years of frustration and annoyance for owners of e-bikers. 
 
“Most e-bikes have been gathering dust for the past number of years with owners fearful of a £1,000 fine and six penalty points if bikes were taken onto the road.  
 
“The Green Party NI has worked extensively with e-bike owners on this issue and after a lack of progress during the Stormont stalemate I’m pleased that the Minister has taken action.  
 
“The Executive must do everything possible to promote active travel and closing the gap around e-bikes and road legality is an important aspect of that.” 
ENDS
