one of the most terrifying nights of my life was when a group of ~5 of my friends decided it would be a cool idea to scoot around DC after dark on a school trip

In SLC Utah where I live, these scooters are actually really useful. The sidewalks in SLC are never super crowded, so the scooters pretty much have free reign, but that’s probably just SLC.

American cities have for years failed to provide basic affordable mass transit, which when you think about it, is one of the most important functions of government. Its kind of amazing how mad city councils get that someone actually fills the massive gap of service they were meant to provide. "You can't do that! Its our job to try ineffectually to do that!"

Im from minneapolis and here we have bikes which the city owns that you can rent by the minute/hour. Were a very bike based city so theres plenty of bike lanes and these bikes actually pre-date the stupid scooters, so almost no one rides them. All the money from the bikes also goes to supporting our public transport. I cant imagine how frustrating life would be without them as i have terrible balance and dont even want to attempt riding a scooter like that

I was in SF when these were rolled out and it was handled terribly. I live next to Dolores park which is a hotspot for young hipsters getting high and goofing around and these things were all over. Every morning I would see the vans plop a bunch of them on every corner and throughout the day they would get scattered all over the sidewalks completely blocking the relatively wide sidewalks. With the rent-a-bikes at least they were contained into their ports but the model of scattering them all over the sidewalks and blocking traffic is just horrible.

One big problem is that these scooters are (were?) EXTREMELY dangerous for blind and visually impaired people because people would just haphazardly doff them in the middle of the sidwalk.

In France thèse electric scooters belong and are ran by the city, and they are meant to be used on the same lane as bikes. And honestly it works, or perhaps they don't tell us everything and there are a lot of accidents (which is possible) but I have the feeling it goes easy that way.

So. I use an electric bike. And so I looked up the law on electric bikes on sidewalks in california. If there is no bike lane. and you feel unsafe on the street. You can go on the sidewalk.

I honestly dont follow the controversy. Like, at all. If people use a service, they want it, it is in demand, and not being offered any other way, so by its very existence, if people are getting annoyed by people using scooters, that means people are using the scooters, the service is being paid for and received. Shit like "unregulated ride sharing" is just a way for governments to encroach even further on markets that genuinely have no right to be regulated in the first place. The only reason, you would use an Uber, or a Bird, or a Lime, or a Pina Colada In The Rain Mark 23542463456 or whatever else, is because you require that service, and the only way you would be annoyed by someone using that service, is if you would be equally annoyed by someone who owned the method of transport using it. There is no functional difference to anyone other than immediate parties involved between them using the service, and them just owning an electric scooter and in cases like Uber, the ONLY difference is that it reduces emissions and traffic congestion, which, aren't bad things, if you needed that said. If you are living, in a city, and then you have a problem, with what people choose to do, move out of the city, end of story, because you are in a location, with a high concentration of individuals, who are free to make choices, you do not personally like, that includes electric scooters and if enough people dislike them, and they can provide solid reasoning for getting rid of them, then get rid of *_all_* of them, because there is no reason why renting a scooter, is any worse than buying one. (also there really isn't any reason a government should even be allowed to force protective equipment, at least on a personal scale. If you cant make suicide illegal, then how the actual bloody hell can you justify reducing personal safety. It would be like making having sex without a condom illegal for "The greater good" and "Because people don't know what they need" and oh shit this is sounding pretty hyper authoritative init?)

This isn’t meant to be an attack more a criticism of his argument, but at 6:55 he uses The point “ i like to have fun” when he had a much better and logical point after that saying “there arnt bike lanes everywhere” if you give a reason of “I like to have fine that making your argument subjective and not a widely realized point it’s not based in any logical sense. If this I was your whole argument then you would be saying that your personal enjoyment is a reason for these people to not feel safe on their city streets. Again, I’m not trying to attack just trying to help with his argument. Keep up the good content!

I have 2 takes 1. The guy who hit the girl with the scooter was like 85% his fault, but the 2 crossing should have looked both ways before crossing. Last time I didn't look both ways, I got hit by an actual car so it's a decent practice to get into, especially because people on Bikes pull that same kinda shit, it's not just scooter people 2. Burning the scooters is a terrible thing to do and should be punishable, at least with some kind of say, $20 fine.
