Disabled and Aged don't mix with Electric scooters

IF I CAN'T GET YOU I'LL GET THE CARNAGE YOU LEAVE BEHIND

There must be better education around the use of e-scooters and rules for the users. 

There have been concerns raised about the regulating and the policing of electric scooters. It is about how they interact with the public and their use in common areas pedestrians use.

How scooters are used is a safety issue, particularly for disabled people. They cause congestion on the footpaths when they are left, which can be particularly difficult for people with mobility issues.

They are left lying across footpaths and even in underpasses, they are left everywhere!

They are capable of high speed and operate very quietly and users don't use the 'horn/bell' often enough.

There is evidence of a large range of injuries that do occur due to falls or collisions while trying to avoid dumped scooters.

There's not a general awareness by the public of just how serious these injuries can be.
