I guess everybody has seen the news of the first London electric scooter fatality near Battersea Park;
Can’t say im surprised
About a month ago - riding down to a T-Junction with Garratt Lane, lights green in my favour. as I turned left at the lights I just saw something in the corner of my eye coming towards me on the right.
Arsehole on an electric scooter had gone through a red and whizzed past my front wheel doing approx 20-25mph…I braked and the bike stalled and I manged to catch it as it fell to the left.
Shitbag whizzed on and raised an arm to wave at me, either to say “Sorry” of “fuck off” I don’t know, he then mounted the pavement and dissapered down an alley into a housing estate,
In some ways i wish I had hit him since his protective gear was , a beret, a vintage suit, an orange cravat, and trainers
