    The Coroners Court is recommending mandatory safety helmets on e-scooters, after its report into an Auckland man's death

    The Coroners Court is recommending mandatory safety helmets on e-scooters, after its report into an Auckland man's death


    The man crashed into a concrete power pole on a modified e-scooter, while under the influence of methamphetamine.

    Radiology registrar Mark Bekhit says a lot of the e-scooter injuries he's seen, have been alcohol or drug-related.

    He says he can't be sure people will wear helmets - if they've taken substances.

    Bekhit says it sounds like a simple recommendation, that's easier than targeting methamphetamine abuse - but he doesn't know it will solve the problem.
