Police test Latvian-produced electric scooters

During the Song and Dance Festival, the State Police are testing two electric scooters produced in Latvia. The scooters allow them to reach speeds of 25 kilometers an hour and navigate through participants and spectators. So far, scooters have been particularly useful in catching unauthorized drone flights, Latvian Television reported on July 4.

Māris Vitkovskis, Chief Inspector of the State Police Special Tasks Division, said: “The State Police have been renting the electric scooters from local producers during the Song Festival, as it suits in urban conditions to get to a specific location or to locate drone pilots because normally we cannot predict where they'll be. It can be in different places. Sometimes we have to climb rooftops."

Latvia has also sent these scooters to Ukraine. They can develop speeds of 100 kilometers an hour. The vehicles tested by the police allow a speed of 25 kilometers per hour. If these vehicles prove to be useful enough during the festival, the State Police will also purchase them for daily use.
