Not sure I am liking the new e-scooter Bird partnership so far. Bikes are littered all over, often blocking sidewalks and very unsightly in our beautiful Sam Ramon neighborhood. Safety and helmet issues also come to mind along with how well the 18 yr + old age limit can really be enforced. With all the other structural and environmental areas for improvement, it seems like poor use of funding. Motorcycles are bad enough and subject drivers to more accidents so I can’t imagine how adding more of the same/similar will do anything but open up the possibility of more accidents/injuries. I’m sure there are those who welcome this idea, I’m just not one of them.

The no parking zones are failing miserably. All I see are the scooters and bikes dumped haphazardly on sidewalks throughout the city.
