Dangers of cycling

Recommended Posts

Those scooters are the most annoying things. People leave them in the most inconvenient places (such as my bus stop), and the things shout at you and make annoying dalek-like noises if you try to move them. I don't care, I'll move the damn things if they are in my way, and they can squawk as much as they like!

They do present a not insignificant tripping hazard. That said navigating ones way through the city sidewalks is pretty much an obstacle course of sandwich board signs and seats and tables.

We have electric hire scooters.... In the most nanny of all nanny states I'm am actually surprised the government allows this behavior. Unless its one of their mates who owns the business. I am waiting for the first death or serious injury (and I'm surprised there hasn't been one) for them to be summarily shut down.

I suspect there were several moments that stretched his comfort zone.  Excellent skills and didn't deserve to have his boat stolen.
