Let’s be clear here. **
Skateboarding is dangerous. Electric skateboarding is even more dangerous (more speed).
**. If you don’t know what you are doing - don’t do it. If you still choose to do it - accept that you are doing something dangerous and do what you can to mitigate the risk (like - staying in the safest area to skate possible and not riding in traffic), and riding at a speed you feel you can control (like swerve/avoid and stop).
People need to be responsible for their own choices and don’t expect safety when riding on top of a toy at 20+mph! Wear protective gear appropriate for the speeds you want to go (like downhill folks wear if you want to go that fast), and ride speeds you feel you can safely stop at.
I also Paraglide, and when folks ask “is it safe?” - “No. It’s as safe as i can make it. And I fly in conditions i am confident i can handle, or stay on the ground if in doubt.” Safety gear and training and practice - but it’s still not safe. Staying on the ground is safe - but not as much fun! (cloudbase - can’t even describe it properly)
