"Medical attention was required for this young rider. We wish this rider a speedy and full recovery. We also wish for him to have learned a great lesson from this episode.

"Can you imagine this same e-scooter hitting a pedestrian from behind?

"With the Active Mobility Act being enforced since last month, will the new guidelines and stricter penalties help to deter reckless riders?"
