Scooters vs. People: Get them off the sidewalks.

Amid everything else going on, I’m not going to claim that the dangerous use of electric scooters — which began appearing in major cities in 2017 — is the country’s biggest problem. But it’s at least a problem we can easily fix. Sidewalks simply are not a place for rapidly moving, heavy objects, be they mopeds, bicycles or scooters. Scooters belong in the street or, even better, in dedicated bicycle lanes where those exist.
