Riding an electric scooter through city streets has become the latest trend.
That being said, the speedy, silent mode of transport has come under some controversy.
Whilst on one side some see the value of the eco-friendly mode of commute, others are worried about the dangers.
This has led to cities across the world hastily coming up with new regulations for scootering.
In a hilarious viral video, a woman who is being interviewed complaining about new safety regulations gets hit by a car.

Leave the tricks to the pros.I mean so long as you don't attempt anything crazy like a mid-scoot backflip, you should be fine, right?
But it's so tempting...Trust me, as soon as you try out one of these bad boys and start increasing your speed you'll get carried away.

Cities are cracking down.
One commuter in Barcelona wasn't happy about the new rules.
via: YouTubeWhen asked by the interviewer what the new rules meant for scooter users, she explained: "You can't go anywhere unless it's a cycle path or ACIRE (zones of restricted vehicle access.)"
Forget the rules!
via: YouTubeIn defiance with the rules restricting electric scooters to cycle paths, the girl proceeds to scoot along a busy crossing.
Living her best life...
via: YouTubeIn what could have been the perfect end to the video interview, the girl seems to glide away.
But wait, hang on...
via: YouTubeJust before the scooter user could safely reach the other side of the street she gets knocked down by an oncoming vehicle. I guess that's what the rules are there for...
