Wow. Blasey Ford says that Grassley scheduled the public hearing expecting her to testify “at the same table” as Kavanaugh. At the same table as the man she says once tried to rape her.

Appreciate it. I do agree that more reporting on car deaths is warranted and the stats are shocking. Thanks for reading!

Difference is that people are generally aware of the risk when drive. Scooter riders may not realize the devices can be poorly maintained or vandalized, and that they're giving up they're right to a trial and jury when they ride. Comparing to vehicles misses the point.

In addition to being unaware of maintenance issues, many riders don't realize they're signing up for binding arbitration when they use a scooter, which removes ability to sue in case of malfunction. That's also part of the premise.

Not exactly. Attributing to bike lanes is speculation. DC docs aren't tracking injuries closely yet. Each city has unique maintenance challenges. Premise is severe injuries are growing and users don't know what they're getting when they ride. That's not usually the case w/bikes.

Ace reporting from on the scooter industry: ER doctors in 7 cities where the scooters launched reported "a spike in severe accidents" Meanwhile, the companies have slipped “binding arbitration” clauses into user agreements—so riders can't sue

Scooter use is rising in major cities. So are trips to the emergency room.
