    Feedback Needed Regarding e-Scooters in Beacon Cove

    The BCNA Committee has received numerous safety complaints regarding e-scooters in Beacon Cove, particularly regarding our older residents. Similar concerns have also been reported in the press.
    There are considerable limits on the use of e-scooters in Victoria. Privately owned e-scooters can only be used outside private property if they have a power output less than 200 watts and are limited to under 10km/h. Commercial e-scooters can only be used in participating council areas (which includes City of Port Phillip) as part of a trial, are limited to under 20km/h, and riders must not ride on footpaths, must wear a bicycle helmet, must be at least 18 years old, must not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and must not be using a mobile phone.
    The BCNA is now seeking feedback from all Beacon Cove residents on e-scooters so that it can pass this on to the council, government, regulators, and the Police. Please email your comments to
