Lime Scooters Recalled for Breaking in Half

In November 2018, Lime issued a global recall for Okai model electric scooters because they could break in half during use, according to the Washington Post. The recall came several weeks after Lime warned that the scooter baseboards can sometimes crack or break apart “when subjected to repeated abuse” or “if ridden off a curb at high speed.”

Riders Report Lime Scooters Broken in Half

Riders in cities throughout the U.S. have also regularly reported on social media that they’ve seen Lime scooters broken in half, usually where the baseboard meets the stem.

Texas Man Dies After Falling Off Scooter that Broke in Half

In September 2018, a 24 year-old man from Dallas, Texas named Jacoby Stoneking died after falling off a Lime scooter and suffering a head injury. He was found unconscious and badly injured several hundred yards away from a Lime scooter that was broken in half in the road.

Lime Mechanics Warn About Safety Hazards

One mechanic for Lime said cracks could develop in the baseboard within days of an electric scooter being placed on the streets.

Another mechanic reported that the scooters can snap even when the rider weighs as little as 145 pounds, and wrote:

“I would suggest that these are unsafe for public use. It’s only a matter of time before someone is severely injured…if not here, somewhere else.”

Lime Recalls Scooters for Battery Fire Hazard
