A reader writes in about the Dockless Mobility Program which I posted about here yesterday. Since yesterday, we’ve gotten quite a lot of email about this program – most of which I can’t post. City staff updated City Council recently on the program.
A reader writes in and says the scooters are an eyesore:
I am NOT in favor of this program. Bikes and scooters do not belong on streets with pedestrians and cars. I have a theory that our streets were built at a certain width for automobiles, not bikes and scooters. Widen the streets and maybe they can coexist – until that happens I an not in favor of the program.
I believe the scooter are an eyesore, many fall over (for various reasons), block sidewalks (meant for pedestrians), and I have continually noticed in the Carlyle area that the riders disobey traffic laws. I also believe this is not good for property values.
Prefer to see them gone.
What do you think of the scooters?
