Actually it was one of those electric rental scooters and it must of been doing at least 20 KMH. Luckily I could break in the beginning of my turn.
Wouldn't it be logical that bike lanes should also have their own traffic signals like the rest (cars, pedestrians, buses and trams)? If the light is green then the bike lane should have a red light like the crosswalk's. Or is that asking too much from the town?
No, IMHO not logical. That would increase the number of separate red/green phases massively, for no real gain.

Small objects often appear to be moving faster than they actually do, especially if they take you by surprise. That said, e-scooter mustn't do more than 20km/h; AFAIK only those that passed a type test are allowed on the roads. Other than that, bicycle regulations apply, including usage of the bike lanes.

The problem may be that he overtook on the right while the cars were moving, your case shows why that's forbidden.
