Today I got this today:
"Scooter use is rising in major cities. So are trips to the emergency room." Washington Post

Bigger issue is one we have been dancing around for a long time:
Multiple vehicle types of vehicles, variable speeds and weights in lanes we share with cars, bikes ,pedestrians , the elderly, children,
In the face of this we have very poor ability to work out solutions, poor social communications , angry philosophies and narcissistic selfishness from all directions.
It is really about communication and living together, and we are not doing well.
Everyone blames everyone else, and while this happens we get videos of folks riding small wheel scooters down busy streets and public steps talking about how cool it is. Until it's not.
