I note you seek access to the following information:

I have today decided to disclose the located information to you in full.
Please find below information pursuant to your request above.

In June 2021 the Roads and Transport Policing Command ran a week of targeted activity relating to e-scooters. This coincided with the launch of the rental trial, a scheme aimed at using e-scooters legally, and was aimed to reiterate to the general public that the launch of the trial was not a relaxation of the rules regarding private scooter use.
