A study (pdf) conducted by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), 119 people have died while using electric scooters or e-bikes between 2017 to 2021.

The report states deadly crashes involving these vehicles may have gone unreported, prompting transportation officials to take action.

The NTSB made several recommendations to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and the Federal Highway Administration on gathering data for e-bike and scooter trips and the miles traveled. It also called for an e-bike code to be added to a national injury tracking system.

In 2023, new codes were added to the ICD-10-CM code book that includes e-bikes.
