  1. A scooter that has lights doesn’t really need a reflector. But yes there is what to learn. Helmets save lives. I assume YS means scooterists by ‘they’. But there are actually many things that everyone can learn even if you don’t ride scooters. Here’s a few. Don’t go too fast, and be careful, especially by intersections. Everyone is a pedestrian sometimes. Watch out from cars and scooters. And the cars should watch out for all kinds of pedestrians. Even if the scooterist in this story was not reckless, everyone should wake up and try to be less reckless in all areas of life. Disasters happen. If you are reckless there’s a bigger chance one will happen.
    I think scooters that don’t go too fast are much safer than cars in terms of serious injury. For the rider and for people around him. Although they are much more dangerous in terms of light injury.

  2. With the amount of people using ev scooters or bikes something should be done for their safety possibly a bike lane and more enforcement as far having reflector vest and helmets while they travel around the town

  3. those who are riding bikes or scooters need to learn how to take care of themselves. whoever gives the the bikes or scooters to the riders needs to insist that the riders use the safety items that are available. some time ago. i attempted to give a ride to 4 teenagers. when i told them, as they seated themselves in my car, that everyone had to wear a seat belt, each one of those boys got up and walked out. parents, wake up. if you are not insisting that your children ride safely, whether its a bike, a scooter or a car, accidents, chalila, are on you
