These shocking images are a warning about eScooters
Share bikes are back on our streets, with a new operator entering the market.
They’re called LimeBikes and they’ve already popped up around Sydney.
But Lime don’t just do e-bikes.
They also have scooters and are planning to bring them here too.
Listener Dan was holidaying in America when he had a horrible experience with the Lime scooter, sustaining some nasty injuries in an accident.
He says the app you use to hire the scooters suggest you wear a helmet, but he says he had no idea where to get one.
While riding the scooter, Dan went over a lip in the road and was flung over the handlebars.
It’s left him with seven stitches, a fractured cheek and a fat lip.
Dan tells Ben Fordham the scooters are “convenient” but can be “dangerous”.
“If you’re going to consider using one, think twice and use a helmet.”
