The popularity of e-scooters is on the rise in Australia, but there’s a bit of a problem. The laws differ from state to state, and there seems to be quite a bit of confusion around how and where they can be legally ridden.
A man was reportedly arrested this week in connection with a recent bank robbery after his credit card that was used to rent a Jump e-scooter linked him to the scene of the crime.
E-scooters can be crazy dangerous even if they’re functioning properly, but especially if they experience glitches or design flaws that can put riders at risk. In Switzerland, an alleged Lime glitch has reportedly left electric scooter riders with serious injuries.
