Like many cities, Nashville is home to multiple e-scooter brands. These small transportation devices can be activated via smartphone and driven around the city for a small fee per minute, making them appealing to both residents and tourists who are traveling short distances. However, the safety of these devices has come into question in recent months.
While scooter riders should always be safety-conscious while riding, drivers should also be aware of their presence and always be on the lookout for them—especially near downtown Nashville. The next time you’re driving through a scooter hotspot, keep these tips in mind:
Scooter riders travel much faster than pedestrians—When driving or turning through an intersection, remember to always look both ways and to check multiple times before proceeding. That’s because scooters are much faster than pedestrians, but can be just as difficult to see.
Scooter riders don’t always follow the rules of the road—Scooter riders can be erratic. They may ride off of sidewalks and into the street at any time, or they may drive through stop signs and red lights without slowing down or stopping. Driving defensively in areas where scooters are frequently used can help you avoid an accident.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville car accident lawyers know that drivers, pedestrians, and even scooter riders aren’t always focused on safety. That’s why it’s our goal to help victims get compensation after they get hurt by other people’s negligence. If you or someone you love was injured, contact us today for a free consultation.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!
After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.
I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
