The safety of e-scooters is being questioned after the country's first death involving a Lime scooter.
A 59-year-old man died on Monday night on Auckland's Fanshawe Street.
Police are still making inquiries into what happened. In a second incident on the same street a woman was hit by an e-scooter yesterday while stepping off the bus onto the footpath.
An Auckland Councillor is calling for e-scooters to be removed until their safety can be guaranteed. A spokesperson for pedestrian advocacy group Living Streets Aotearoa, Ellen Blake, told RNZ reporter Tom Furley things need to change.
