Add silent scooters – and silent policy – as one of your hazards

In Melbourne on the weekend I was nearly “cleaned up” a couple of times with near miss e scooter incidents. So I thought I’d do a quick check on some questions around whether it’s an issue in Melbourne – and elsewhere.

The answer is YES

In England

In Adelaide

A hazard – whispering up behind

– or alongside of you

In a policy vacuum

What to do? In the absence of clear policy and risk management oversight we are left to our own devices.

Add e Scotters as one of your hazards.
We are all differently vulnerable.
Assess your vulnerability.
