As E-Scooters and Mopeds Become More Available in New York, Accidents Likely to Rise.

Electric moped sharing startup Revel is expanding rapidly in New York City. Like Citibikes, the mopeds can be rented from stations all over Brooklyn and Queens with just a credit card. Drivers are not required to have any previous moped experience and just need a valid driver’s license. The mopeds can go up to 30 miles per hour. Not surprisingly, we are already seeing reports of accidents happening with these sporty E-scooters.

A Revel accident occurred in Washington, DC, when a rider hit a pothole and flipped his scooter over and broke his collarbone. D.C.’s first Revel moped crash was reported Sunday. The rider hit a pothole and fell offWashington Post, August 20, 2019. In addition, the New York Times reported a case where a Revel rider rear-ended a bicycle rider and caused a serious accident. Now Crowding New York’s Streets: Rented Mopeds Going 30 M.P.H, NYT, August 9, 2019.

We anticipate that accidents involving e-scooters will be similar to those we see with bicycles:

· Cars/trucks/bicycles and mopeds crashing;

· Pedestrians harmed by e-scooter riders;

· Untrained or impaired riders falling off of their e-scooters;

· Car doors opening and hitting moped riders; and

· Mopeds are hitting potholes or other road hazards.
