New Year and a new development in California Legislation that affects motorized scooters drivers:

According to (AB 2989, Flora), bicycle helmets are no longer required for riders of motorized scooters who are age 18 or older. It also amends existing law to prohibit a person from operating a motorized scooter on a highway with a speed limit greater than 25 miles per hour, unless it is within a Class IV bikeway as well as a Class II bikeway, but, it permits local authorities to authorize the operation of motorized scooters on roads with speed limits up to 35 miles per hour outside of a Class II or Class IV bikeway.

Here is some statistics on the accidents and injuries related to e-scooters:

  • Since electric scooters began populating streets of some of the country’s biggest cities, there’s been a big increase in accidents and emergency room visits.
  • The study finds the e-scooter injury rate was 14.3 per 100,000 trips.
  • The CDC finds that almost half of e-scooter injuries involve head trauma.
