With electric scooters appearing in cities around the world, people wonder for many reasons if they're actually safe. Earlier this week, Lime announced that it had recalled Segway Ninebot scooters operating and limited charging to only its own facilities due to a "potential problem" in "previous versions of the scooter that could cause fire hazard."
The only problem is Segway released his own statement on Friday, which suggests that it is not problematic to monitor scooters properly. That could be the problem. Segway VP for Global Business Development Tony Ho told Washington Post that "we actually went to all our shared scooter partners, and so far we have found that only the lime operation has had fire incidents. "
In a statement (PDF) 80 percent of" joint scooters "used from one of the three Ninebot factories said a separate explanation for the inconsistency:" Considering the management and maintenance of shared scooters and identification of damaged vehicles is highly dependent on operators, we strongly recommend that the operator rs strengthen the fleet operation and maintenance capacity to avoid potential safety issues caused by improper use of damaged vehicles. "Now the companies have said they are working" tight "to answer questions about any malfunctioning batteries.
