e-scooter girl

E-scooter Girl
I have never tried riding on an e-scooter. And chances are I never will. In Stockholm, you see them everywhere. Mostly after someone just dumped them on the walkway, or in the middle of the bike path. This girl probably enjoyed her ride around town as it was a glorious Autumn day. Last time I checked, there were around 14 000 e-scooters in the Capital. The different companies that owns the ones you can rent will have to pay a fine for every e-scooter they don't properly park, which would be most of them.

I wish they would do the same here. Some sidewalks around my neighborhood look like fields of scatter scooters. I have ridden them twice and I think they are wonderful for the city but when people ride on the sidewalks or are not mindful of the other that is when the trouble begins. I have been pushed out of the way and insulted for walking on the sidewalk and not moving fast enough to let scooter riders go through.

I've seen a few of these on crowded sidewalks and they tend to get in the way. I'm sure lots of people find them annoying.

We don't have them here. The city decided not to allow them.

The behaviour of those using them has pretty much made my mind up against ever using them.
