"This is the first major accident involving an e-scooter this year."
Hey WFIU, how many major accidents have involved cars?
City of Bloomington Announces Installation of 50+ Parking Corrals to Enhance Micro-Mobility and Pedestrian Safety
They're setting up places to put scooters and e-bikes, and apparently users will be required to start and end trips in them. Probably a good idea, but I hope they won't take away a lot of sidewalk space for them. It would be better to devote a couple of parking spaces instead.
Missed this entirely: Bloomington is requiring its scooter companies to provide 25% sit-down scooters or e-bikes.
"Throttle-powered, seated vehicles are favored by older riders, women, and people with disabilities. Many of these traditionally underrepresented riders prefer seated vehicles because they provide a greater sense of comfort and don’t require the need to stand or pedal"
Paris bans rentable electric scooters. My knee-jerk reaction is that they should dedicate some car lanes to them instead, but Paris is doing such a good job already in minimizing car traffic. Not sure what's going on.
