Kaiserslautern (ots) - During a patrol through the city area, police officers came through Slevogtstraße early on Thursday evening. Here they could see two young men starting a scooter. Because it could be seen that there was no registration sticker on the scooter's license plate, the officers wanted to speak to the two men. So when they turned their vehicle around, the scooter came towards them - occupied by two people.

The police followed the scooter in the direction of Pfeifertälchen, where they found the vehicle parked on the street in the “Fischerrück” area - without driver and pillion passenger. Two helmets lay next to it on the floor.

While the police officers checked the scooter more intensively, two young men came running “around the corner”, who were the driver and his pillion passenger. As it turned out during the inspection, the 23-year-old driver does not have a driver's license and the scooter has also been out of service since August 2020. License plates and vehicle keys were then secured. The two men had to push the scooter home - under police supervision. The driver must expect a criminal complaint for driving without a license.

The police officers also took on an e-scooter driver on their patrol trip. The electric scooter attracted attention because it had no insurance license plate. When asked about this, the 25-year-old driver stated that he had only bought the scooter the day before and wanted to take it for a test drive before he had it insured. The young man was told that this is not allowed; he was forbidden to continue his journey. The 25-year-old was accompanied home with a criminal complaint for driving without insurance cover in his luggage. | cri
