Do shared e-scooter services cause traffic accidents? Evidence from six European countries

  title={Do shared e-scooter services cause traffic accidents? Evidence from six European countries},
  author={Cannon Cloud and Simon He{\ss} and Johannes Kasinger},
We estimate the causal effect of shared e-scooter services on traffic accidents by exploiting variation in availability of e-scooter services, induced by the staggered rollout across 93 cities in six countries. Police-reported accidents in the average month increased by around 8.2% after shared e-scooters were introduced. For cities with limited cycling infrastructure and where mobility relies heavily on cars, estimated effects are largest. In contrast, no effects are detectable in cities with high… 



Spatial associations of dockless shared e-scooter usage

Speed Limit Enforcement and Road Safety

We study the impact on road safety of one-day massive speed limit monitoring operations (SLMO) accompanied by media campaigns that announce the SLMO and provide information on the dangers of

Impact of Weather on Shared Electric Scooter Utilization

Statistical modelling is used to analyze hourly weather factors (surface temperature, precipitation, snow, wind speed) with hourly trips to understand the impact of weather on e-scooter usage and found usage was more sensitive to temperatures below freezing and snowfall than rain.

Pedestrians and E-Scooters: An Initial Look at E-Scooter Parking and Perceptions by Riders and Non-Riders

Since 2018, pedestrians in many U.S. cities have been sharing sidewalk space with dockless shared e-scooters. The introduction of e-scooters has received pushback from pedestrians. Complaints

Provisional COVID-19 infrastructure induces large, rapid increases in cycling

It is shown that the rollout of so-called pop-up bike lanes during the COVID-19 pandemic has worked, and it is calculated that the new infrastructure will generate between $1 and $7 billion in health benefits per year if cycling habits are sticky.

“I’ll Take the E-Scooter Instead of My Car”—The Potential of E-Scooters as a Substitute for Car Trips in Germany

Considering the controversial discussion about the sustainability and usefulness of e-scooters, in this study, we analyzed the substitution potential of e-scooters, especially with regard to car

Missing cyclists

Great effort and precision needs to be applied to routinely document the burden of cyclist crashes, especially cyclist only crashes.

The Integration of Electric Scooters: Useful Technology or Public Health Problem?

The article focuses on the growing popularity of electric scooters (e-scooters) and possible public health issues related to their use and recommends wearing a helmet while riding, only riding on roadways, being at least 18 years old, and not blocking public pathways when parking.
