Increase in Scooter and Moped Popularity
Electric scooters and mopeds have increased substantially in popularity over the last few years. A number of companies have been dumping electric scooters in metropolitan areas and allowing riders to use them with no training on the roads. Some of the most popular companies disseminated scooters include Lyft, Bird, Lime, and Uber. These vehicles can go as fast as fifteen to twenty miles per hour, with riders that do not know how to operate the scooter and who often disregard traffic laws because they do not know what applies to them when riding an electric scooter.
Who is Injured in Moped and Scooter Accidents?
There is potential to injure many different parties when an electric scooter or moped accident occurs. In almost every scooter and moped accident, the rider on these vehicles is injured in some capacity due to the complete lack of protection that these vehicles provide. Many accidents are also reported of scooters crashing into pedestrians or pedestrians getting injured tripping over scooters left on the sidewalk. Cyclists are also injured when scooters try to share a bike lane. When these vehicles are taken out on the roadway, accidents involving larger vehicles like cars and motorcycles also occur.
