Bloke in 1904... A poor analogy. HORSE N CARTS are of course an essential part of everyday life. CARS are just unnecessary and a HAZARD! Old bean...

So they've killed hundreds of thousands fewer than cars, yet with cars we focus on those misusing vehicles rather than banning cars from the roads. It's a bit like wanting to ban people talking, as some spout ****.
Been riding an e scooter and an e-bike since 2004, back when they used NiMH batteries. To say I'm an early adopter would be an understatement. Respectfully, you should try one. The braking and handling may surprise you. While its unfortunate that the novelty continues to attract immature riders, the benefits of a compact, folding vehicle that weighs as little as 12 kg while propelling you to 25 mph for 20+ miles is disruptive. The ridiculously low number of scooter deaths should emphasize this. No excuses for foolish behaviour though.
I heard that Dominic Cummings mates own e-scooter rental companies! Conspiracy!
