Unsafe roads deter women from using e-scooters, research find – transportxtra
The lack of safe, segregated infrastructure is discouraging women from hiring e-scooters, according to new research.
Some 79% of female respondents said that not feeling safe due to infrastructure was a barrier to riding.
It found that, similar to cycling, only 30% of e-scooter riders in the UK are women.
In general women also want to gain a better understanding of the law around e-scooters, and need access to safe, well-lit parking spots, said the study by urban mobility firm Voi, JFG Communications and Women in Transport.
