Glasgow City Council is looking at the possibility of launching a trial of E scooters, for hire, in the city.
Other trials, in England, have had mixed results with some being halted because of careless, and dangerous, use of the fast moving devices.
Sight loss charities, RNIB Scotland and Guide Dogs Scotland have submitted evidence and letters to Councillors, highlighting the dangers of E scooters on our streets for pedestrians with disabilities.
RNIB Connect Radio's Allan Russell spoke to Catriona Burness, from RNIB Scotland and Anne-Marie Barry, from Guide Dogs Scotland, to hear more about their concerns and the result of the meeting on October 22nd.
