Is the answer to unregisterable e-scooters actually a tier of motorbike below the e-moped?
Combine registration, MOT and insurance to reduce admin so ownership overheads can be kept low. Low overheads and comparatively low purchase cost should encourage private ownership such that they don't become clutter.
Cap the power to 500W or 1kw and the speed to 20mph, such that a bike helmet is enough (but mandatory, because motorbike).
Any implementation of that scheme would clearly end up being rolled out to bikes as well after a Daily Mail campaign.
The clear distinction being that these would not be human powered.
