Mother, daughter seriously injured in motorized scooter crash at Mission Beach
First of all you're here on vacation. Second of all, you don't live here. So why would you want to tell the people that live here what we should try and ban!!!???? You're the idiots that got on the same scooter, even though they specifically tell you one rider per scooter. Neither of you had a helmet on. Sorry you got in an accident, but it was partially caused by your own stupidity. Go back to Arizona, please.

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A family is pleading with the San Diego City Council to ban motorized scooters after a mother and daughter were severely injured riding one of the controversial vehicles in Mission Beach.

11-year-old Ally DeWitt and her mother, Courtney, were enjoying a day at the beach on their trip from Phoenix when they decided to rent a motorized scooter.

According to the family, both Ally and Courtney decided to ride on the same scooter. A short while later, while riding on the Mission Beach boardwalk, the pair got into a serious crash, sending the mother and daughter to the hospital.

Meh. They had no regard to the one rider per scooter or wear helmets. So they want .gov to make up for their stupidity. Excellent parenting mom.

They are probably currently working on a civil suit against the city...

Where has personal responsibility gone? It always has to be someone else's fault nowadays. The mother should be charged with child endangerment if anything.

My .02 cents anyway!

Don't even get me started. I'm convinced that Arizona has active classes teaching their citizens how to be a complete and utter idiots behind the wheel. These classes appear to be MANDATORY for the entire state!

They must be Democrats, it's somebody else's fault, not enough laws, etc., et yada, et nauseum. They should be name DeWittless.

I wouldn't mind seeing those little rental scooters go away. I do some delivery work downtown and have nearly hit several people who are either just not paying attention and a couple times 2 ppl riding a single scooter.

It's tourist central, expect that crap. Me, I went hundreds of miles to the Mono National Forest to get away for remote target shooting in my Jeep Wrangler.

Then some SF metrosexuals come riding by on mountain bikes asking if I was leaving because their kids were afraid of guns!

There's only 100,000 empty acres around us and 200 miles of other trails. I guess in California you can't ever get far enough away.

I am glad they were not hurt more seriously and will recover. However, I take issue with your assertion that it was "partially" caused by their stupidity.

It was entirely caused by parental stupidity. The sudden anti-scooter activism after the fact is rich too. It is likely posturing for the inevitable lawsuit against the city and the rental company for failing to save them from themselves.
