    Portland Oregon is allowing these. Though few riders are obeying the Rules - helmet and stay off the sidewalks.

    There are hundreds of them in Boise, cluttering sidewalks, parked on lawns or leaned on buildings near entrances, gangs of kids on them, riding double, not a helmet to be seen. The things are a nuisance!

    But I DO question the above referenced article that states the deceased died of a heart attack and that the driver of the truck was taken into custody. That seems odd.

    The article does refer to the scooter rider having "wounds". The heart attack may have nothing to do with the cause of the accident. It may have occurred after the accident due to the trauma to the body caused by the accident itself.

    And I agree these devices should somehow be regulated as to where they can be used. They certainly have no place on a public sidewalk, anymore than a bicycle does. We have many bicycle lanes here in Toronto. I can see them being used in designated bike lanes, perhaps.

    We were recently in S. Lake Tahoe and they had a lot of the lime scooters. Lots of kids riding them, mostly on the sidewalks. Never a helmet on. I was surprised they moved as fast as they did. Saw a few riding double on them. The only person I witnessed being exceptionally stupid was an adult crossing a busy road were he shouldn’t have.
