London: Man riding E-Scooter crashes when car door opens into his path

An e-scooter rider went flying when a motorist opened her door in his path.

Londoner Ross was recording his journey through South London on his hi-tech 360-degree camera.

In the footage, he is quietly cruising down the street in Streatham on his e-scooter as he approaches a parked black Ford Fiesta.

Without warning the car door opens suddenly right in Ross’s path.

The video, which was filmed back in August, but only just uploaded onto Ross’s YouTube channel (Underachiever’s Journal), then shows Ross taking a painful blow as he falls off the scooter.

He winces in pain as he limps to the kerb and sits down. The woman who opened the car door collects his belongings and brings it over to him.

The woman is apologetic and immediately admits responsibility, but Ross is calm and forgives her.

Ross said: “I was fine, a couple of bruises and scrapes but nothing too bad.”

E-scooters could be allowed to use the roads ‘within the next 12 months’ as they are currently still illegal to use, despite them being a common sighting in cities across the UK.

Sales have soared 71 percent during the pandemic and police have seized thousands of e-scooters ridden illegally.

Anyone riding their own scooter on the streets now face a £300 fine, six points and confiscation of the vehicle.
