When considering whether electric scooters are environmentally friendly, we must make the distinction between scooter share and scooter ownership
Think an electric scooter, e-bike or e-skateboard will replace your car? Unless you live in a major metro with copious access to transit, the limited range of these devices WILL be your biggest issue
People die every day in car crashes with incredibly few calls for cars to be banned. But when mass transit suffers a deadly collusion, or a micro-mobility option incurs a death, citizens cry for changes, restrictions, and outright bans on their use
Nashville has banned e-scooters after a tragic death of a young rider. Using the same logic, I am asking the mayor if he would also consider banning cars.
Every e-scooter share problem could be resolved if cars weren’t exclusively prioritized
Don’t listen to the haters… these things are great, and I’ll tell you why.
