0 pointsFound this excellent opinion on another site that I need to share with everyone The writer is Chris https://www.neighbourly.co.nz/message/view/55722440 I hope the writer will consider joining this forum and sharing his views and opinions about, not only Lime Scooters but ACC as well. ACC operates on a No Fault system. To cut to the chase, it's the NZ ACC Levy Payers that foot the injury bills including E.R.C (earning related compensation) My opinion is that if a product and or service used in NZ is proved/known to cause any level of injury, the importer/manufacturer/service provider should be required to pay a huge percentage of the cost of the ACC claim and charge their clients/customers extra money which goes direct to the ACC Levy Payers fund/account to off-set costs associated with the injury causing whatever. An example - NZ tobacco/cigarette smokers pay an extra tax on any tobacco product which I believed was to help the District Health Boards look after smokers when/if their health deteriorates The same system could also work on Lime scooters. The more people use them, the more money goes into the ACC levy payers account/fund. Why did Lime not cease hiring out these scooters everywhere as soon as they became aware of the issue? One, maybe Two "Brakes Locking" issues should have been enough for LIME to hit the pause button until the serious issue was fixed and tested! Since Lime Scooters suddenly appeared in NZ I have been waiting for that breaded News Flash that a person has been killed while using a Lime Scooter! I hope I never see the day. Just a note, Its no use asking some users/riders of the Lime Scooters to slow down and ride responsibly some wouldn't give two hoots on how many old folk and kids they hit - some more than others think they're indispensable when riding a lime. Until its too late. sadly next is rip I'll try and make contact with someone at Lime and invite them to join and participate in these discussions.
