Last year, Dallas approved the dockless scooter companies Lime and Bird to operate on the streets of Dallas. Together, these companies have placed 1,000 scooters on our streets and the number is growing.
Also growing is the number of serious injuries, both to scooter drivers and to pedestrians hit by scooters. The scooter companies don't provide helmets, and many crashes cause serious head injures for the drivers. And as to pedestrians, the scooters travel up to 15 miles per hour, and crashes with pedestrians is causing broken bones, concussions, and severe cuts.
