as long as you don't plan to ride on the road, barge into pedestrians, or demand right of way, you should be good

the number of accidents involving e-scooters are increasing, and it is a matter of time before there is a clamp down on the 'pimped' up E-Scooters

PS, today morning two funny incidents.

At a traffic light a lady came dashing in a normal kick scooter and forgot how to brake. Straight into the bit of greenery at the end, collected herself, gave a silly blush and off she went

And a little later, a guy on a Uni-Wheel, nearly came to cropper when a passenger alighting from a bus dashed across his path !!

Why bother to do something like that. He's going to give us his recommendations for the shop he works for and tell us why that bike is the better choice. tic...toc...tic....toc.... I'm just waitin'!

If you’re able to commute from your home to workplace, i suppose the distance isn’t that far. Personally, I would discourage the usage of e-scooter, especially since there’s been countless number of accidents involving e-scooter riders, and what’s worse is that some of them are fatal accidents. Speaking of which, just this morning, there’s one accident involving a double decker bus and an e-scooter. Here you go!
