Paraphrasing parents all over the world- "and if the scooter riders rode off a cliff, would you ride off the cliff, too?"
The problem is a failure on teh scooter rider's part to recognize the risks they're taking because "it's just a scooter" and "I'm just going a short way". Most collisions are close to home (possibly because most trips are short and stay close to home, but still) and the asphalt isn't any more forgiving on a scooter than it is on your Tiger.
