The misuse of the e-scooters has reduced over the past few weeks and we are seeing less people riding against the rules.
We have worked in partnership with Zipp, SWaT and Minehead Bid to introduce the new trifold Zipp signs within the town that have the usage rules on them to further educate the riders.
Any misuse continues to be acted upon by the police and Zipp mobility. Comments, reports of misuse and suggestions can be sent into email@example.com.
