A Study on Improving Legislation for Promoting Utilization of Personal Mobility and its Safety Management
Recently, personal mobility has been continuously activated as part of the city's first/last mile short-distance mobility. As the relevant legal system and the policy implementation system have not been reorganized, it is difficult to enhance the convenience of users and support safe passage. Due to the recent increasing number of casualties, the legal status of personal vehicles, including electric kickboards, and the implementation of policies to reduce risk factors are continuously required.
On the other hand, personal mobility sharing services, which have recently attracted attention due to new forms of mobility supply such as shared mobility services, are also in the spotlight, and as more and more businesses are providing such services in metropolitan areas and pro vincial metropolitan areas, policy management measures for the convenience of users are also required.Therefore, in this study, the legal status and transportation methods of personal mobility devices, measures for safe use, and issues raised in the areas of personal mobility sharing services are identified through analysis of the current status and analysis of overseas cases and drawn up as a domestic legal reform plan.
