UAE authorities have added signboards warning Kite Beach visitors of AED300 fines if you use e-scooters or bikes on the jogging track and boardwalk. 

Kite Beach’s move comes after authorities banned the use of electric scooters in public parks. Dubai Municipality stated that electric scooters are banned in parks to avoid accidents.

The post also reminds residents that the maximum speed limit for cyclists is 15km/h. E-scooters could go for 20km/h and some residents have complained that they pose dangers in public areas where people frequently walk.

These electric motor-powered scooters are widely regarded as an environmentally friendly mode of transport, particularly with regards to ‘first and last mile’ solutions. If the trial is successful, the use of e-scooters in Dubai helps to ease congestion on the roads.

Lanes have been dedicated to scooters and bicycles in areas around Dubai but please remain vigilant.
