e training

eScooters are just basic training for those interested in achieving Darwin awards.

I was in Valencia City centre a few days ago where the city council has spent millions on marking out cycle lanes on the broad footpaths, trying to get to the kerb to cross the road can be a bit of a challenge with 30MPH+ eScooters appearing rapidly from nowhere.

They outnumber the cyclists by quite a margin now, I'd say 80-90% of cyclists wear helmets compared to 20-30% of scooteristas.
