Bikes and scooters a hazard

People on these devices perhaps shouldn’t be on the sidewalks or they should be more considerate

I had an experience where I didn’t realize, because of traffic noise, there was someone on a bike coming up on me and I turned around at the sound from the bike; in doing so I turned almost into the bicyclist.

The experience I had with the person on the motorized scooter is that I stopped for a moment on the sidewalk and the person on the scooter was following me so closely that he ran into me with his scooter. I wasn’t seriously hurt but I could have been.

These people on these devices perhaps shouldn’t be on the sidewalks or they should be more considerate of the other people, who are using the sidewalks as well.
