All accidents with ninebot max.
1 accident) Driving on a road forward parallel to 2cm higher road tiles and then turning my wheel to them and my wheel refusing to climb this pathetic 2cm higher ground and slipping and making me off balance. Its not my fault - the bicycle would have done it no problem but scooter wheels are too short AND too narrow. Didnt crashed much i managed to fall down safely.
2 accident) Walking with scooter and raising it off the ground to carry it over 15cm border - rear wheel hitting my ankle, that stuff hurts!
3 accident) Riding brand new bicycle road and then hitting large hole due to road not being finished in that hole - the rest of the road was finished just the hole was left unfinished in a very weird way! Almost braking my hand, it took months to heal up
4 accident with no crashes) Random slips of front wheel due to its narrowness on bad road - even 3 or 5cm gaps between road tiles can make driving unsafe. The ESG should bash all scooters and force to make all scooters have wide wheels. The normal wheel width should be 15cm not 7cm.
WHAT CAN WE LEARN: Im not going to say what is possible to learn from this. YOU do the learning by imagining these situations i was in!
IM NOT BASHING ESG: The only real learning I can say is ESG is too polite towards scooter manufacturers by giving glowing scores AND at the same time giving an “aura” that those scooters are safe and good ENOUGH thus boosting the “confidence” in people thus making those people to drive unsafely with no experience.
One example is ESG braking distance. Their proffesional driver can stop the scooter safely in short distance but most people WONT be able to stop that fast creating the fasade that you - and average person can stop the scooter just as quickly. The ESG could have a disclaimer “just because Paul can brake scooter as a proffessional, doesnt mean that You random buyer can do that too”. Something like that!
