Footage posted on Twitter shows a man skating on the inside lane of London’s busy Limehouse Link Tunnel. The tunnel is one of the capital’s busiest A-roads and excludes cyclists and pedestrians from entering the tight road in East London.

Electric skateboards and scooters have become increasing popular on UK roads despite them remaining illegal.

Transport for London (TfL) chief Mike Brown called for a review of the safety of electric scooters on public roads, citing the inevitability of them becoming legal. In an interview with the Evening Standard, he expressed concern that e-scooter riders could present a danger to both the public and themselves.

Video footage does contain some strong language.

Doing this kind of thing only reinforces the outdated laws about roads. Its time for people to realize roads are for people, not cars exclusively.
But forcing it and breaking laws isn’t going to win us anything.
Every road needs a bike/skate/ scooter lane alongside it!
Unlike gas cars. E-transport isn’t going anywhere.
But again, until lawmakers wake up… breaking laws is no way to win over the ignorant.

Yeah…..I understand that about them still being illegal, but it’s not like the tunnel can just be arbitrarily widened to add some bike lanes. Taking a skateboard or scooter into that tunnel is just asking to be ran over.

This stupidity will slow up the changes in the out of date highways laws preventing scooters and better and safer forms of travel getting on the road. If anyone using vehicles behaves and used roads sensibly and get if pavements and driving down one ways streets the wrong way we have a chance.

The rider may be very skilled, but if he hits a pothole he is off and under the car drivers wheels in milliseconds. That not fair on car drivers who have to live with this.

Umm he wasn’t on his phone while driving see the black thing at the bottom of the video that’s ment to hold your phone so you can use it as a dash cam or have it at the side so you can use it as a GPS using googlemaps and he only adjusted the angle when a moron is riding his slow e skate board down a busy road only intended for motorists 😤
