8. There's a huge difference...

the roads are designed for cars. Cyclists don't ride on certain parts of these roads because they are too dangerous for them as well. I don't know the stats for the roads where these people died but I am guessing the majority of auto deaths are on the highways and not the city streets.

The person riding the scooter does not have to own the thing to grab one and ride it. Probably gets them there faster than a bicycle would. That's one difference between scooters and bikes, hence this money making business.

I am not against bikes or scooters and if I ruled the world, there would be designated lanes for these. As it is, safety is an issue right now.
