Such a sad tragedy and a dreadful time for his family. But I hope it encourages the council to introduce a law for these scooters. I rarely see anyone wearing crash helmets here whilst using them and they can travel over 30kms along the shared paths. Riders rarely give warnings when approaching pedestrians from behind and if a collision occurs, people are going to get hurt, possible with serious consequences if it is a child or an elderly person.
