It is with much delight that I read “Electric scooters are coming.”
Seattlites always enjoy another challenge to our daily existence. In addition to navigating around tent camps, needles, trash, a multitude of bikes parked anywhere and everywhere, we would love to add electric scooters to the list of things to dodge or trip over.
Plus, the electric scooters will have the built-in entertainment factor of pedestrians watching and wincing while the intoxicated zip around on them. I, as well as many of my neighbors, are keeping our fingers crossed that soon there will also be Lime skateboards, Lime pogo sticks, Lime stilts and Lime hula hoops to add to the delightful mix of noncar physical means of movement through our beautiful city.
