A netizen uploaded videos depicting a young man showing off his E-bike and even speeding down the road.
There is a potential for danger when using electronic scooters due to their lack of safety features, such as brakes and protective gear.
Riders of electronic scooters may be more likely to suffer serious head or bodily injuries from falls, collisions, or other accidents. Additionally, the risk of being hit by a car is higher for scooter riders than for pedestrians.
It is important for users of electronic scooters to wear protective gear such as helmets and make sure to obey all traffic laws.
