“According to a 2019 NAFTA study, shared e-scooter systems have a fatality rate five times higher than that of bike share systems,” New York City DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg said. “The Revel crash rate in September was 50% lower than in June, when the rate peaked at about three crashes per 10,000 trips.”

City Council is considering a bill that would require shared moped companies to implement more safety precautions, including a way to make sure riders are wearing helmets.
