An Accident Waiting To Happen
Electric scooters have emerged as a convenient way to get around in many of our San Diego communities and have become extremely popular with both residents and tourists. Their popularity in sometimes crowded city streets makes them both fun and very dangerous to both riders and pedestrians. Both beach communities and downtown are popular areas for this efficient method of transportation. The popular scooter companies have touted them as environmentally friendly for short trips versus cars, taxis or ride-shares. With the simplicity of downloading an app to your smartphone and entering your credit card, you are now qualified to scooter around. There are terms and conditions, warnings, legal requirements, and more in the app. These are meant to outline safe operation of the electric scooter and acceptance of these terms are required. It is also the rider's obligation to read and understand how to operate the scooter. Some may say that this process is why electric scooters are deemed an accident waiting to happen.
Here are some of the ways scooter accidents happen
➣Scooter malfunctions like brakes that can throw a rider
➣Not wearing safety equipment
➣Accidents with motor vehicles
➣Riding on sidewalks or weaving between street and sidewalk
➣Abandoned scooters in busy pedestrian areas
➣Multiple people on a single scooter
