6. I've been almost flattened by scooters a couple of times.

Idiots ride them just as insanely and selfishly as they ride skateboards and bikes on sidewalks -- they come zooming out of nowhere, zig-zagging back and forth, zipping through narrow spaces right next to pedestrians, NEVER saying a single word of warning, and NEVER wearing a helmet.

The scooters are a particular menace because they are almost silent and can quickly accelerate in any situation, plus the riders almost always have little experience and no training.

I've also come perilously close to hitting them while driving a car. Scooter riders frequently are listening to music with earbuds and blissfully unaware of their surroundings, running red lights and paying no attention to traffic.

I hate these vehicles and the companies that make a profit off them.
