Kicker – No need for speed in Denmark

MARY REICHARD, HOST: Police in Denmark recently seized an electric vehicle from someone in Copenhagen because they said it goes too fast. Going at several times the legal limit! 

This vehicle in question? Well it can travel as high as 36 miles per hour! 

Okay, that probably doesn’t sound like much. And it isn’t for a car or a motorcycle. But this? It’s a motorized scooter!

E-scooters you can rent are a common in European cities. But some people riding them have ended up in emergency rooms or even worse. 

So police are strictly enforcing the e-scooter speed limit of 12 miles per hour.
