An electric scooter rental business in NYC is racking up injuries and lawsuits.
Revel, the scooter rental company that has 1,000 scooters on the streets of Brooklyn and Queens is currently facing 7 lawsuits.
According to an article published in the New York Post, the scooters can be rented to anyone who can afford the $5.00 down, has a valid driver's license and downloads the app.
Under NY State law mopeds can be operated without a motorcycle license as long as the vehicle cannot reach speeds of over 30 mph.
A Revel spokesperson said they offer free, in-person lessons, 7 days a week for customers.
