Over 400 riders caught under influence of alcohol in Munich since vehicles legalised in June
Politicians in Munich are calling for the use of e-scooters to be restricted during Oktoberfest in response to number of people being caught using the newly-legal vehicles while drunk.
The use of electric scooters was legalised across Germany in June in the hope they may help reduce the carbon footprint of commuter-heavy urban areas.
Since then, however, Munich police have caught and reprimanded 418 people for operating them under the influence of alcohol. The scooters have the same drink-drive limits as cars.
