Summary

In April 2019, the Vision Zero San Francisco Injury Prevention Research Collaborative released an analysis on e-scooter collisions and injuries. The analysis combines data from both City and County sources to assess incidents of injury on powered scooters in the city. According to the report, of nine people with traumatic injuries treated at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital in 2018, 44% were injured in crashes with motor vehicles, 22% reported wearing a helmet, and one person was struck and injured by an e-scooter while walking. The report includes five overall recommendations to reduce collision and injury risk

  1. Provide additional information on where riding is permitted;
  2. Increase access to helmets;
  3. Monitor use of scooters by youth;
  4. Conduct additional analysis; and
  5. Improve tracking of e-scooters associated with injury.
