A man died after colliding with a woman while both rode electric Lime scooters on the Mission Beach boardwalk in San Diego, authorities said Monday.</p>
<p style="margin: 0px 0px 1em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-image: initial; background-position: initial; background-size: initial; background-repeat: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; font-family: georgia, serif; line-height: 1.5em; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 1.15em;">
The crash was reported at about 1:35 p.m. Sunday in the 3300 block of Ocean Front Walk,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sandiego.gov/police" style="outline: none; color: rgb(0, 108, 180);">San Diego police</a>&nbsp;Officer Robert Heims said.</p>

The 48-year-old man and 22-year-old woman were &quot;adjacent to each other when for an unknown reason their bodies collided and they both lost control,&quot; Heims said.</p>

these stvpid ass scooters are everywhere in long beach flying by u at 30mph while u walk. how the fk are they allowed in the same place where kids walk and play. just a matter of time before they collide with a person walking who gets injured and sues the fk out of the city

Like a skateboard with horsepower. I picked up a used Segway Ninebot scooter for $100, it's pretty fun to ride. It's easy if you skate, surf or snowboard, sort of the same rush you get from riding a wave. That natural skater/surfer move to stomp down on the tail to slow down, unfortunately, is not hard-wired into most scooter riders muscle memory. That's why those fools are killing themselves. I ride mine around the neighborhood to relax.

The city does not care - fits in with their CLIMATE ACTION PLANS.
