Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Minehead ZIPP Scooter Trial

We are working closely with the ZIPP Scooter team to ensure the use of scooters is monitored.

We are working hard to engage and educate riders and where necessary issue penalty notices and riders being banned from using the scooters in the future.  A reminder also that private e-scooters can be seized if used on public roads

We take all complaints and concerns seriously, any misuse that can be deemed an offence can be reported via 101 or 999 dependent on urgency.  Comments and suggestions can go to


  • Sunday 22nd August, 2021

    Since the beginning of the trial numerous tickets have been issued by officers to those using the e-scooters in an illegal manner.

    We continue to engage and educate with riders around the laws of the e-scooters and provided reassurance to the community by holding 2 events in conjunction with Zipp and Somerset West and Taunton Council

    We have also issued official warnings to users of private e-scooters who will have their scooters seized if seen riding the scooters again
