Scooters: Safety hazard outweighs fun

I love the Lime scooters now available around Tacoma, but I’m concerned that not a lot of people wear helmets when riding them. The scooters save energy, are pretty cheap to rent and are extremely fun, but is it worth the risk of people getting hurt?

I’m not saying that everyone is irresponsible with these scooters, but too many people don’t follow the rules of the road or the terms and conditions.

Maybe they should have some way a making sure you wear a helmet.
