On my way home yesterday, I had been drinking a little so I just had my board ride next to me as I was walking. Whilst walking up a hill a police car drove by and as they passed me they turned around and stopped beside me. They were absolutely amazed by the fact that my longboard was just rolling next to me like a dog. We talked for a while and they asked a lot of questions and they were really intrigued by the board.
When I got home I searched for what law says about electric skateboards in Sweden and it turns out they are considered bicycles and have to be equipped with lights, reflectors and a bell for warning pedestrians. Also, they should be limited to 20kmh or around 12mph.
So far I’ve only had positive reactions and people are really impressed. Has any of you guys had any problems with police/security guards/angry pedestrians?
