Why not relax the requirements for tax and MOT etc. on motorised bicycles.  Currently an electric cycle can be used on the road without these formalities whereas a bicycle with a tiny clip-on engine going no faster than the electric one has to be encumbered with number plates etc.

Why is this idea important?

Electric bikes are popular but their restricted range is a problem. If the crushing costly legal requirements were repealed on simple motorised cycles restricted to 20mph. Their use in towns would soar, saving hugely on emissions, travelling time, and congestion.
