Very premature too. We are not in a position to legally make this change until we have actually left the EU. Even after we left it would mean changes to multiple laws, getting parliament to approve all those against DfT advice.
They don't because there is no need to. Those who want more power for climbing or fighting headwinds can move to the L1e-A class. That's pedelecs also limited to 15.5 mph but allowed up to 1000 watts rating, plenty to tackle anything.If the Person that decides on these Rules were the ones doing the riding , perhaps they would change their tune a bit !
You are far from a minority in here Michael, that impression mainly comes from those wanting more speed/power being so vociferous.I know I may be in a minority on here but I think the 15.5 limit is OK. On flat roads I generally ride at about 17-18 mph but I don't think greater assistance is needed.
Well I just checked and 412 people have signed it - some people will sign anything!What are they talking about ?...when you reach the 15.5 whatever speed you drop down a gog and wizz along with little or no effort ....No way is anyone gonna sign such a badly worded petition ...
You might not have any need to raise the subject but you are certainly not any less vociferous on the subject.You are far from a minority in here Michael, that impression mainly comes from those wanting more speed/power being so vociferous.
Those like ourselves who are satisfied with what we have don't have any need to raise the subject.
