Lime spokeswoman Lauren Mentjox said it was disappointing to hear any report of unsafe riding.
"Safety is our top priority at Lime, and we urge riders to always put safety first when riding our scooters," she said.
"We invest significant resources in rider safety education and responsible scooter use."
Mentjox said all riders must agree to Lime's terms of service before they can sign up, and this included adhering to local traffic laws.
"Like all forms of transport, not following the rules could lead to accidents that are otherwise avoidable.
"Riders who break the rules or have been found to have ridden dangerously can be banned from the Lime service.
"We offer our full support to local authorities, should they require information."
