Day 223

January 27th, 2019 at 09:20 am

While I was away, Lime scooters were introduced all over town. They cost nzd20 an hour. I don't think they'll solve the energy crisis for anyone but the ablebodied well to do,

Add the e-scooters to the kids riding regular scooters, students riding bikes and skateboards and hooverounds, pedestrians have to keep alert on the sidewalk now. Maybe they should rename it the sideride.

    When I was a kid, sidewalks were for walkers and joggers and anyone else who chose to use it for bikes, rollerskates, skateboards, or scooters knew they were the ones that needed to stop and get out of the way of the actual pedestrians. Today they will knock you over instead or shout at you to move. I hate inventions like Lime, because they don't have to account for stuff like this. I think they should be forced to put in a bike lane or something for these things when they come into a town.

    We have quite a few bike lanes in town but it's surprising the number of riders that don't use them - mostly the ones who don't wear helmets.
