Bird Scooters in Cambridge

I think they’ve been banned, but this one was on Broadway near Draper Labs both yesterday and today. The controversy I’ve heard about is a public safety concern: where should they be allowed to park; how fast should they be able to go on the sidewalk; how slow should they be able to go on the street…

But having actually seen one, I think theres a nuisance concern, too. This one has an annoying beep, and the message just says “rent me”, not that it’s in any kind of distress. Maia finds it annoying, too.

The next Tuesday that might be an exception is September 4,
which is an election day. I mention this early because if you
live in Massachusetts and want to vote in the Primary Election,
you need to be registered by August 15, which is quite soon.
