Trucks dont use the sidewalk
Which is why the sidewalk is safer for scooter riders.

In your case, the solution is clearly to stay off the sidewalk.

Escooters didn't exist before a couple of years ago. Pedestrians have always existed. Somebody driving an escooter takes the risk of being crushed by a truck if he drives it on the road. They are allowed to drive them on the cycle paths which is fine by me. And on the roads even but it's them who need to take the risk, not the pedestrians. The pedestrians came first. So to all escooter drivers: STAY OFF THE PAVEMENTS.



ohhhhh i'm so frightened of you, please don't be so hard on me you big boy

Why the intolerance? We all share the same space. Why can't you just be reasonable?

Cats aren't tall enough to operate a standard-sized scooter.

Please don't talk nonsense.

Why should "I" be the one to step aside if the escooter is driving it illegally where I am walking? The escooter should not be on the pavement in the first place.

I walk straight at them (and straight at cyclists riding on the pavements) waiting for them to go to one side. If they don't I will sue the hell out of them, plus the escooter hire company holding them vicariously liable having owed a duty of care to properly inform their customers or ensure that they are not allowed to drive them on the pavements.
The "e"-trotti idiots

My neighbours are gonna sue me for laughing too loud too often this afternoon.

I'll sponsor your grave-stone! "Here lies the man who had himself killed intentionally to make his point.>>

You will go down in Swiss history as "remember the expat who got himself killed, insisting to be right and the judge ruled 'joint guilt' (Mitschuld des Opfers)"

Don't worry. I will be wearing heavy armour and protection before I decide to do that...

For anything you will find something on youtube.......

Just wondering why you are so focused on litigation .......Better start saving money as you will need that for a lawyer.

So one man in Peru rides like a twat therefore you wish to punish scooter riders in Switzerland?

Seems a bit extreme, no?
