In April, the Oslo emergency room registered 59 injuries related to accidents involving electric scooters, a decrease of more than 50% compared to the same period in the previous year.
In April 2021, there were 136 injuries related to electric scooters, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports.
New restrictions on the number of electric scooters have recently been implemented in Norway’s capital. Now, only three companies can rent electric scooters – 2,667 each – in Oslo, compared to up to 20,000 scooters previously.
In 2019 and 2020, there were 33 and 36 injuries involving electric scooters, respectively, so the number is still higher than then.
In the first three months of the year, there were also about as many injuries as the year before.
