Government’s Plan to Boost E-bike Power Raises Fire and Safety Concerns

The government wants to make e-bikes more powerful and faster, but some worry it could lead to battery fires and accidents.

Right now, e-bikes can’t go faster than 15.5mph or have motors stronger than 250 watts.

The government wants to double that power. Critics say this could make accidents worse and batteries more dangerous.

They think the focus should be on making current e-bikes safer, not making them faster.

But some argue that stronger e-bikes could help with deliveries and reduce pollution.

The government says they’ll listen to feedback before making any decisions.
