Police are already cracking down on e-scooters in Bracknell a week after it was claimed riders have “no respect for pedestrians”.

Residents who whizz along on the electronic scooters can now be seized and slapped with a public spaces protection order asking them to stop riding in busy places following concerns from the community.

This claim was made by Alison O’Meara, Head of Community Safety in Bracknell, at a council meeting earlier this week.

She was responding to complaints from councillor Isabel Mattick, who said cyclists in the town centre were a “growing menace” as they are “going from side to side, totally on the wrong side of the street, they’re doing wheelies.”

The councillor added: “Now added to this you are getting the e-scooters which are even more dangerous.
