Rash of e-scooters accidents

Berlin police say in the three months since popular electric scooters have been allowed in the German capital, they've seen 74 accidents, 65 cases of drunken driving and 233 traffic violations.

Police said today spot checks of scooter drivers in the evening hours show they are “frequently intoxicated”—and are treated the same as drunken drivers of automobiles.
