Dallas officials are investigating the death of a 24-year-old man who was found unconscious in the street next to a broken Lime electric scooter

Lyft and Uber, two giants of the ride-sharing industry, are playing catch up in the electric scooter market, with the likes of Bird and Lime quickly grabbing more of a foothold. The pilot program will start inside of a hundred and twenty days, and in the period in-between, corporations can put together for a conditional utilize allow for up to three, 000 devices.Lime issued a observation announcing it "welcomes the Los Angeles Metropolis Council's approval ... of new guidelines allowing corporations to present enhanced mobility alternate strategies for the metropolis's residents".

Dell Seton Hospital tells FOX 7 Austin since May 1st, they've had 8 severe trauma patients due to scooter injuries, including 5 head injuries and 3 orthopedic injuries.

"They look like a lot of fun, but I've seen some near-misses", says Paula Glacken. "We've talked about $1 per scooter per day that would go into a dedicated fund for pedestrian safety in the city that could be used on a variety of projects that are related to pedestrian safety".

Almost a year after e-scooters started appearing in Venice, the Los Angeles City Council has passed legislation regulating these controversial transit devices.


In a recent poll, 25% of Lyft customers said that owning a personal vehicle "isn't important" to them, prompting Lyft to deploy its army of purple-sticker adorned speed-demons in the city.

"That's part of the agreement we would have". "When you have a partnership with the company you can say, 'This is how we're going to work together, ' and you can cancel that at any point if the relationship isn't working out".

Councilman Greg Landsman says he believes the city should be a partner with Bird. "I guess I'll just stop riding them if the fines get to big", he adds.

"If you pay attention to what's happened around the state, there's a number of cities that have done this poorly. Dallas has had all kinds of problems with bike share and College Station has many of challenges", Pope said. We are encouraged by the support we have received from the people of Norfolk thus far, as they embrace our last-mile solution for those trips that are too long to walk and too short to drive.
