"Taking a hand off the handlebars to show the direction of travel creates instability."

E-scooters are increasingly part of the streetscape in cities. In the accidents with small electric vehicles recorded by the police, there were 2020 accidents with injuries and deaths in the period from January to September 1.570. In accidents with e-scooters, there were 1096 slightly injured and 269 seriously injured in the first nine months of last year. Seven people have been killed. We spoke about the first findings from this press release from the Federal Statistical Office in a short interview with Siegfried Brockmann, Head of Accident Research at Insurers (UDV).
