Scooter rider dies in crash with car on busy Fort Lauderdale road

It had to happen sooner or later — someone has died riding an electric scooter on a busy Fort Lauderdale road.

The death was believed to be the first in the county involving an E-scooter, according to the Broward Medical Examiner’s Office.

The popular dockless devices have many critics, and have led to several traumatic injuries, but they have escaped a ban in Fort Lauderdale.

Apart from the rash of serious injuries, there have been complaints about underage riders, people who don’t wear helmets, scooters crowding out pedestrians on sidewalks, and of riders who venture into roadways.
