Woman in Cleveland Dies While Riding Electric Scooter

There is a reason so many ads are out there telling people to "Look Twice for Motorcycles". They are exposed and do not have all the safety features of a car. There are no airbags or seatbelts. If a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, the odds of it being serious are great. This same principle applies to the electric scooters popping up in cities across the country. These scooters, while a fun and convenient way to travel short distances, can be very dangerous - especially when sharing the road with other automobiles. Over the weekend, a young woman in Cleveland was struck and killed while operating one of these scooters. The crash happened around 10 p.m. on East 9th Street near St. Clair Avenue.

Bird, Lime deploy electric motorized scooters in Columbus

Don't you know about the bird? No, we are not referring to the hit single by The Trashmen - we are talking about the new electric scooter craze popping up on city streets and sidewalks. This new mode of transportation is designed to provide another "last-mile" transportation option for those traveling short distances around the city. The scooters can be unlocked through a smartphone app for just $1 and an additional 15 cents per minute while riding. However, the costs of using these scooters can be much more severe if riders are not careful.
