Public and official Backlash against escooters in LA

Post by Hillhater » Aug 12 2018 8:15pm

...hailed as a solution to urban gridlock when they first arrived in Los Angeles a year ago, Bird and Lime scooters now find themselves on the receiving end of a public and bureaucratic backlash — especially on the Westside, where they’ve established a buzzing omnipresence.
In Venice, where Bird is headquartered, City Council members voted to cap the number of scooters on city streets while officials craft longer-term regulations. Beverly Hills officials ordered them banned for six months. Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Koretz asked officials last week to take “all available measures” to outlaw the scooters within the city.

It's probably because they violate user privacy to a degree that's prohibited in the EU. Be glad not to interact with businesses like that.
This is to express my gratitude to Justin of Grin Technologies for his extraordinary measures to save this forum for the benefit of all.

But i guess those scooters are nothing compared to China's problem with share bikes..
