CDC analyzes scooter safety, finds drunk driving

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has launched the first-ever study of electric scooter accidents. The preliminary results show that 98 per cent of electric scooter accident patients were not wearing a helmet.

48% had a blood alcohol level above the legal limit and 52% tested for illicit substances. Looks like it isn’t quite the vehicle that has been acting as a safety hazard, but instead lax attitudes of drivers possibly not entirely recognizing that this is, indeed, a vehicle in traffic deserving of all the deference of other traffic-bound vehicle. Shocker.
