What Causes Electric Scooter Accidents?

  1. Not reading the manual: If you purchase an electric scooter for business or pleasure, it is essential to read the manual. Even if you have operated one of these devices before, there may be details you don’t know about, which if neglected can cause crashes or accidents.
  2. Not practicing before taking it out on the road: Again, even if you have ridden an e-scooter before, it is important to test yours out before taking it on the street. This will ensure you are prepared to use the device in a way that is safe for yourself and others.
  3. Not storing it in a safe spot: Failing to store your scooter in a safe place can cause it to break down quicker. If you leave your scooter in the middle of the street, not only could it get stolen or destroyed, but someone could trip over or crash into it. Leaving your e-scooter out in the open is also a bad idea because it may be affected by the rain and the heat, leading it to malfunction. This brings us to…
  4. Riding your scooter in bad weather: Riding a scooter through rain or snow may make you more likely to slide into a car or pedestrian, causing an accident which you would be held liable for.
  5. Double-riding: Double-riding, i.e. more than one person riding on a scooter at once, is extremely dangerous. Not only is this a hazard for you and your friends, but can also double the damage in a collision with pedestrians.
  6. Riding on the sidewalk: Many cities have ordinances specifically preventing scooter operators from riding on the sidewalk. This is because you are far less likely to hit a pedestrian while riding in the street.
  7. Failing to charge the battery: The last thing you want is for your scooter to die in the middle of the road, leading to a crash that injures you/those around you. Always make sure your scooter’s battery is fully charged before you leave the house with it.
