New transportation technologies are exciting and generally welcomed by the public. However, sometimes these technologies are brought to market too quickly without appropriate safety precautions.
Recently, a company called Bird has deployed hundreds of electric scooters across Tempe and Scottsdale, Arizona. These scooters are easily accessible to anyone with a smartphone, identification, and credit card. There is no training or safety equipment provided. Any rider can get on a scooter in minutes.
What happens when a serious injury occurs as a result of using one of these electric scooters?
No doubt there will be many serious injuries in Arizona for a number of reasons including the lack of safety precautions and rapid deployment of these technologies without appropriate coordination with the municipalities.
