On 25 January 2019 Reuters reported:
Shareable, two-wheeled standing scooters, which are the rage in some West Coast cities, may be more risky to riders -- and pedestrians -- than people think, researchers say. The battery-powered devices look like a skateboard with handlebars. ... Among 249 patients admitted with standing-scooter-related injuries, 100 had head injuries, 79 had broken bones, and 69 had contusions, sprains, and lacerations without a fracture or head injury. ... two required admission to the intensive care unit. Just 10 patients had been wearing a helmet when their accident occurred.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern health systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
On the plus side, the scooters are 'a really innovative and inexpensive means of transportation,' said senior study author Dr. Joann Elmore, a professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. 'But riders seem to underestimate the hazards. I encourage everyone who uses them to be careful to follow the traffic laws and to wear helmets.'
