Beverly Hills Votes 4 to 1, Bans Electric Scooters

The battle of the sidewalk has taken a turn in favor of removing electric scooters from public access. The Beverly Hills city council voted 4 to 1 in favor of banning electric scooters on any Beverly Hills public right-of-way or public property. The ban was issued in retaliation to the tactics of electric scooter share companies such as Lime and Bird. For those who may not be aware, the electric scooters laying on sidewalks are typically the property of Bird or Lime and can be rented for a fee using a smartphone app. Concern regarding public safety and the potential for electric scooter fatal accidents led to the citywide ban. Beverly Hills anticipates they will revisit the issue in 6 months with a plan of action for handling the increased use of electric scooters.

Motorcycle helmets may only prevent certain types of injuries

As a child, you probably remember your parents telling you to put a helmet on before you took off on your bike. They likely told you that in hopes that it would protect you from a brain or head injury if you were involved in a crash. If it was important enough for you to wear it to go biking on city streets, then it's just as important for a motorcyclist to wear one when driving at tiptop speeds on California's freeways.

Motorcycle helmets can save lives. They offer several layers of protection between a head and whatever may come into contact with it. While they've been proven to reduce the risk of head and brain injuries, a study published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health in 2011 suggested that they can make motorcyclists more vulnerable to suffering neck injuries in a crash.

Bike riding can be dangerous for kids

Bicycles can both build a child's confidence and also break it down. While a child learning to ride a bike may feel empowered being able to get around on their own, falling off their bike, or even worse, being struck while out riding it can cause them to fear doing it ever again.

Data published by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) shows that at least 70 percent of all youth between the ages of 5 and 14 routinely ride bikes. Kids account for 50 percent of those who are injured while out riding bicycles.
