Rideshare Accident?

The Dangers of Using a Rental Scooter After Drinking Alcohol

This might come as a surprise, but DUIs extend to any vehicle with a motor or that can be driven. That includes motorcycles, bicycles, and that’s right, even electric scooters. Even though motorized scooters are not explicitly mentioned, since they have motors and have to be operated, they technically fall under the term “motor vehicle.”

You might think you’re being clever and savvy by renting an electric scooter to get home after a night out, but you’re actually being just as dangerous and negligent as a person who gets behind the wheel. And if you get caught, you’ll end up spending much more than the price of a scooter or rideshare on fines.

Some are even winding up injured as a result of others’ negligence. While the e-scooters are benefiting those that use them, cities are trying to improve the handling involved in an attempt to reduce the overall number of issues for all residents.
