It is currently illegal to ride an e-scooter on a road or road-related area in NSW, and penalties apply if you are caught. In NSW, an e-scooter can only legally be ridden on private property, which is not a road or road-related area.
Road means an area that is open to or used by the public and is developed for, or has as one of its main uses, the driving or riding of motor vehicles.
Road related area means an area that divides a road, a footpath or nature strip, a cycle path or an area used by the public for driving, riding or parking vehicles.
