Accidents happen

These bikes are dangerous. The people who drive them think they have the right of way and don’t have to respect the traffic laws. If you drive these things and get run over it’s part of the deal. Same as driving a car.

Sad to hear. May he rest in peace. Does anyone think its time to start enforcing helmets and possibly a license?? E-bikes are fast as some gas powered scooters. If I had to take a course and a motorcycle test to get my “M” endorsement, then should everyone else who wants to ride on 2-wheels that ISN’T a bicycle.
