Lime Scooter Riders Are Being Injured by ‘Sudden Excessive Braking,’ Company Says

Lime, one of the world’s largest electric scooter companies, is urging riders to be extra cautious while operating its devices because of a technical “bug” that can cause “sudden excessive braking during use,” the company announced in a statement over the weekend. The company said testing has revealed that the sudden braking usually arises when scooters are being ridden downhill at top speed while hitting an obstacle. The danger prompted Lime to issue remote updates aimed at fixing the glitch that have already led to a reduction in the number of braking incidents, the company said. The news arrives several months after The Washington Post reported that Lime scooters had a history of breaking apart in use, injuring riders around the country. The company also pulled thousands of scooters out of circulation in California last summer after discovering that a small number of them may have been carrying batteries with the potential to catch fire.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
