Re: Spin class ...
89% of 7.5% (6.7%) of population says get rid of 'em.
11% of 7.5% (0.8%) of population says, presumably, keep 'em.
92.5% of population shrugs.
Ain't hardly a mandate, is it.
Mind, I have no love (or animus) for e-scooters. Yes, a lot of riders are self-centered twunts who act as if anyone else on the road (or sidewalks/pavements) is "in the way" but then again so are many MANY people in vehicles. If I get hit by a scooter I may get knocked down and crack something (it's likely the scooter user will too), but if I get hit by a car my odds of survival (as a pedestrian, cyclist, or scooter user) plummet (and the driver may suffer the inconvenience of a deployed airbag, assuming the driver tries to stop). Also, scooters left in the sidewalk are more easily picked up and thrown elsewhere (no, we should not have to but at least we can); this is much harder to do with the many MANY vehicles that routinely block sidewalks/pavements with impunity.
Again, not excusing the scoo-tards who act with no consideration or even awareness of others, but in my corner of the world they ain't hardly the worst offender on that score.
