A Queensland woman is in a critical condition in hospital after crashing an e-scooter on a Brisbane road.
It’s the latest e-scooter accident to land a Queenslander in hospital, following a sharp spike in incidents owing to the transport options increasing popularity.
Russell White from the Australian Road Safety Association said the incident is a timely reminder to follow the rules.
“This just reinforces the fact that we have to be constantly aware of the safety rules when it comes to operating any piece of equipment,” he said.
“When we start pushing the boundaries, when we are going too fast for conditions and not sticking to the rules, we are basically going to get in trouble quickly if not careful.”
