    They appear to be a lot safer than quad bikes

    Seriously. That's just nonsense. There are over 800 bicycle deaths in the USA. IN NZ we have a few cycles deaths every year. Should we ban bikes? Damn right we should with their horrid lycra covered bums and holier than though cycle ways.

    Next week Wellington City Council is considering whether to allow another E-Scooter business to operate in the CBD but with certain restrictions. I have wondered if they considered their position under section 37 HSWA because they control most roads and footpaths and these are workplaces.
    Where was the risk assessment that is an implied requirement of the reasonably practicable test?

    Whatever they do doesn't seem to stop buses running people over.

    Reportedly these scooters can go 2 or 3 times faster than running pedestrians. They are a smaller target for bus drivers to see - er, avoid - so there might be more mangled scooterists than pedestrians.
