In fact, the trend is continuing to expand to other cities across the country. A recent study that appeared in a major medical journal, however, shows that safety issues with respect to these scooters continue as well. For example, 90 percent of those who got hurt because of an electric scooter were actually riding the vehicle, as opposed to being a pedestrian or other person in the vicinity. Of those riders, less than 5 percent were wearing a helmet at the time of the injury.
