Many companies have sprung up to try and solve a growing problem in many of America’s urban centers: road congestion due to large amounts of vehicles causing traffic. LimeBike is one such company, offering pedal bikes, electric-assist bikes, and even electric scooters to riders in a way that is both convenient and low-cost.
However, riders often don’t utilize proper safety equipment, which puts them at risk for a serious accident should they collide with an obstacle or another vehicle. Still other users ignore safety practices, riding on sidewalks and walkways which is not only illegal but extremely risky to the safety of pedestrians and residents.
Some common injuries that can occur while using a LimeBike vehicle include:
LimeBike has been lauded for its ingenious way of not only improving personal transportation, such as making it less expensive and more environmentally-friendly, but also for eliminating some of the growing congestion in urban streets around the country. However, while the concept appears beneficial on paper, there are numerous injury risks to these programs.
For starters, those who ignore safety guidelines and laws sometimes choose to take their bikes or scooters onto walkways and sidewalks, endangering pedestrians and risking collisions that could cause serious injuries. Furthermore, those who do ride as advised and stick to bike lanes on roads still risk injury from a collision with a parked vehicle, suddenly-opening door, or motorist who isn’t paying attention. In any of these instances, the results can be disastrous and potentially life-changing.
