I see things like that, but then when I look at the numbers that separate the spots, there just isn't that much difference proportionately and not one that I think people would discern just living normally in the same places.
Quit being reasonable .....wackys old apartment had a shooting by it last month....this is serious.

It's after the completion of education, regardless of what level that is.  And yes, post-education humans should be moving by walking, transit or vehicle.

They can handle it. Even took me up quite a few hills on my two rides.

I really like this idea, brings some revenue to under employed people too it sounds like.  Has to be a way to clean up the logistics of people just leaving scooters strewn about which appears to have been Birds demise in Denver.

If not illegal, definitely unethical.

There are often consequences to doing whatever you want.

yes yes i know that.

i don't consider Trim telling me not to bike a consequence.
but i do consider it contradictory for Trim tell me to do what i want, and simultaneously to not bike.

MO doesn't have a helmet law from what I know.

Post-education biking should be illegal, like murder. You could still do it if you want, but there’d be the risk of consequences.
