Officers with the Banbury neighbourhood police team held patrols on Wednesday June 2 as part of OP Japanese. It is currently illegal to use an e-scooter on public property with a few exceptions.

Anyone caught using an e-scooter in a public place could receive a warning letter, and then a seizure of their e-scooter should the warning be ignored.
