Lime admits to e-scooter fault which locks up wheels at speed, causing 'excruciating' injuries

Lime has admitted that a glitch is causing an unknown number of e-scooters in its New Zealand fleet to randomly brake mid-ride, sending passengers flying. 

It happened to Auckland's Chris St Bruno, whose resulting "excruciating" injuries required three days in hospital and 10 weeks off work.

"My accident alone has cost the country thousands of dollars. Hospital stay, ACC payments and now physiotherapy."

And the ACC Levy Payers, that's you and I and most of New Zealand (compulsory levies on wages, fuel etc etc) pay for the treatment of the injuries and compensate those injured for lost earnings etc!

 

I totally agree .... BAN LIME SCOOTERS!
