Hi. My parents named me Toby and I want to get your take on something...
Is it just me... or are these ELECTRIC SCOOTERS like EVERYWHERE now?
I'm somewhat triggered about this because in the last two weeks, I had one literally almost fall into a car I was driving. Had four sitting in the pathway to get into a building for an appointment I had, I saw one in a FREAKING TREE, saw another thrown down an embankment near a grocery store by my house... and right now, I'm sure if I were to drive downtown, I'd probably see some in the middle of some random street, just left someplace all haphazardly because.... THEY'RE EVERYWHERE.
I get that they do great things for mass-transportation, and they help get people from place to place faster than walking... but unlike a bikeshare service, these SCOOTERS don't have some sort of BIKE STATION... no they just get used, and left... where ever someone wants!
It's a problem. At least I think it's a problem. And then I saw this article from the WASHINGTONIAN and they think it's a problem, too.
They remind me of an electric version of cockroaches, really. I know, that's a gross visual, and roaches are far worse... but these things MULTIPLY and they're everywhere and I'M OVER THEM!
I don't know. Am I crazy or is this a problem? Feel free to hit me up and let me know. I'm gonna go do some focus-breathing exercises now to get past my issues with this...
