Anyone could have told you that.

We all assume risks. I hope the scooter companies aren't getting sued or blamed for people falling on their own.

    This may be one of the most idiotic fads in recent memory. Anyone who scrapes up their mug joyriding one of these things deserves what they get.

    These things go fast though. look at the video.  They can cause serious bodily harm, and it can be a real accident.

    What we need to remember is that these things are not regulated.  Sure, we equate them to walking, riding a bike, skateboarding, but the damage that can be caused by these things are way worse.  ...and people are riding these things on the sidewalks.
