Hoverboards

Citing section 72 of the Highway Act 1835, the Metropolitan Police tweet a warning to owners and users of self-balancing scooters, also known as swegways and hover-boards, reminding people that their use on public roads or pavement was illegal in England and Wales. Any user of such a “vehicle” on a public road is likely at the very least to be committing the offences of using the vehicle without insurance.
