What is a StapStep?
A StapStep is an electric scooter with step support. This electric scooter is legal, because you have to scooter yourself to get support. By means of high-tech sensors, the scooter recognizes that it is being stepped and the motor does its work for a few seconds. Then the motor weakens and another "kick" has to be given. The StapStep does not have to be inspected by the RDW, it can drive on the sidewalk and is therefore extremely useful for moving quickly through the city, for example.
