A new study has found that e-scooters are a lot safer than many may think – five times safer than bikes, writes Andy Weltch.
A report into the safety of e-scooters by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) found an incident rate for e-scooters of 0.66 collisions for every million miles travelled – five times lower than bicycles with 3.33 collisions per million miles travelled and nine times lower than the figure of 5.88 for motorcycles.
