Medical Study Shows Increase in Electric Scooter Injuries
Injuries caused by electric scooters are increasing dramatically, according to a medical study published in JAMA recently. The study reported the findings collected from hospital admissions between 2014 and 2018. Although e-scooters are more readily available to rent, are inexpensive, and a convenient way to get to a location, they can be hazardous and lead to serious injuries in an accident. Jerry Brown, the former governor, signed into law a bill in 2018 that exempted adults from having to wear a protective helmet.
