Surprise! Rental eScooters Can Lead To Injuries!

Scooter use is rising in major cities. So are trips to the emergency room.

This is the most important bit in the piece, not the panic-inspiring litany of injuries:

The District has seen a slight rise in injuries related to electric scooters since their introduction but not one as significant as in other cities, a doctor at George Washington University Hospital said — possibly because of the proliferation of bike lanes in the city.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

When there are no bikes lanes, where will people ride? Sidewalks! What will happen when a novice tries to go up a curb or curb cut? Pinwheel crash.

As for malfunctions, well, these eScooters are designed and made in China. But they’re also intended for single owners who will maintain them, not for fleet deployment to a mass of people who appreciate nothing and misuse them or vandalzie/sabotage them.
