Increase the maximum assisted speed for e-bikes from 15.5 mph to 20 mph
We want the Government to increase permissible maximum assisted speed for e-bikes to 20 mph. The current limit of 15.5 mph (25 kmph) is restrictive compared to those set in some other countries, including the USA, Canada, New Zealand and Brazil.
We believe a maximum assisted speed of 20 mph offers a more natural and comfortable riding pace, and would better enable e-bike users to fully utilize their gears and the bike's potential, and enhance the riding experience. A higher speed limit could also reduce the inclination to illegally modify e-bikes to bypass the current restrictive limit. The change aims to improve safety, efficiency, and enjoyment for e-bike users, fostering a modern approach to transportation.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
