    He is the fourteenth victim on a scooter, and the first in 2022, the 45-year-old who died last night in an accident in Meldola (Forlì-Cesena) according to data from the Asaps Observatory, the Polstrada supporters association, which last year recorded 12 deaths, compared to the only one which occurred in 2020 in Budrio (Bologna). The count of injuries for last year is still ongoing, but there have been about 150 accidents with serious injuries and hundreds of incidents involving users of this vehicle, especially in urban areas. Lombardy and Lazio are the regions with the highest number of accidents, while two pedestrians were hit and killed in 2021 precisely because of the scooters.
    “Absolutely not very high numbers – the president of Asaps, Giordano Biserni told ANSA – but it is necessary to take into account the reduced number in circulation of these modern and agile vehicles linked to electric micro-mobility, a few hundred thousand compared to a few tens of The new rules introduced by the ‘Infrastructure’ decree do not seem to have helped at the moment and absolutely require urgent changes, such as the introduction of compulsory insurance, the identification plate and the limitation of circulation to urban roads only, eliminating the circulation on extra-urban roads without cycle paths where these vehicles can now circulate even at night. A situation that will multiply the risk for this new category of drivers. In the meantime, the ‘infrastructures’ decree has also reduced the amount of almost all of them by 50% sanctions for scooters.
    Everyone can draw their own considerations “.
