Electric scooter (or e-scooter) usage continues to expand worldwide with shared, rented, and privately owned devices. While many communities with e-scooter sharing programs have observed social, health, economic, and environmental benefits of enhanced multimodal travel and having more alternatives to vehicle use, these effects are often accompanied by real and perceived safety challenges.

BTSCRP Web-Only Document 5: E-Scooter Safety: Issues and Solutions, from TRB's Behavioral Traffic Safety Cooperative Research Program, seeks to build upon existing research to date, identify key gaps in knowledge and data related to e-scooter behavioral safety, and develop evidence-based guidance that can enhance the coordination of behavioral safety programs and countermeasures with a broader toolbox of approaches to improve safety for all road users.

The document is supplemental to BTSCRP Research Report 9: E-Scooter Safety Toolbox.
