Here's the scenario. I was recently walking with my six-year-old on one of San Francisco's popular pedestrian streets. At some point, a teen-aged man rode by on a rented (or stolen) electric scooter at, by my estimate, 40 mi/h -- a speed that would very likely cause serious injury to the child, should they have collided. In fact, they nearly did.
I would like to send a letter to the City of S.F. compelling them that in case they, or any 3rd party, like Lime, are sued for personal injury in a similar situation, the plaintiff be notified of my willingness to testify on their behalf. Is there a legal procedure for me to follow in this case?
By my thinking, such a lawsuit would allege the City's negligence in allowing this type of motorized vehicle on pedestrian sidewalks (they are, in San Francisco). To allege negligence, I understand, a trail of warnings and near misses would need to be established, so my letter would serve the dual purpose of serving as such warning and, if possible, compel them do do something about it, like connect the plaintiff with me, should the plaintiff be interested in such a connection.
Thanks in advance!
