I was headed out of the office today and talking on the phone while walking down the sidewalk. I was pretty oblivious to what was going on behind me while strolling down the street. Out of no where a scooter comes flying up behind me and zips by inches from my side. Seconds later another scooter does the same thing. If I had taken a step to the left I'd be in the hospital right now instead of on my couch typing this. Luckily I kept walking straight and nothing terrible happened.
Until this happened I thought people were overreacting to people riding Birds on the sidewalk. I thought this because when I ride on the sidewalks I slow way down when approaching pedestrians and assumed everyone else did the same. Nope, I was wrong. I understand why riders don't ride these on streets without bike lanes, they are to slow, but if you have to ride on the sidewalk slow down!
