Electric scooters

A chara, – I have made many trips to family in Los Angeles’s Venice Beach area over the last years.

E-scooters are widespread there. Most of these are easily rented on the street. They can be dropped anywhere at the end of a journey. They are then supposed to be gathered up by individual contractors in the night hours. They are, in the meantime, an immediate danger to unaware pedestrians, dumped at corners or at junctions. Since so many people end their journey in lively Venice, then the pavements and street corners are piled up with these dumped obstacles.

Let us hope that any acceptance of these scooters for hire in Dublin is better organised, or our emergency departments will be full of broken-limbed pedestrians.

Be warned. – Is mise,
