Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Not what I was trying to say at all... Was saying you are one that gets it and how all transportation fits together and how scooters on a busy narrow street could be perceived poorly by someone who is already anti anything but car. Sorry if that came across wrong. I totally agree with you on the mai...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I didn't have any real beef with the scooter riders until today when I was driving back to work from getting my hair cut. I really think they need to be banned on Main from 12th to 20th. The traffic lanes are just too narrow to be able to get around them safely and the streetcar tracks are a scoote...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Wish people got this riled up for all the laws that are being violated around this city for decades that actually make pedestrian life unsafe.... I do, but there's not a thread about people throwing cigarette butts on the ground or cops using no parking zones for non-police business, etc... Some of...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

When Lime hits with another 400-500 scooters would expect those annoyed by scooters to speak up louder. It's the nature of new things that are highly visible, especially interacting with drivers/peds. The typical pro-urban position is that in the City.. - Peds are highest priority - Bikes/scooters/...

Wish people got this riled up for all the laws that are being violated around this city for decades that actually make pedestrian life unsafe.... And the city law isn't that clear on this....as has been discussed earlier. I'm on your side, I don't want them on the sidewalk.... But I'll say again I g...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Segway tours seem to not illicit such anger.... Guess it's just the sheer number of scooters (and we haven't got started yet) I've never seen any segway tours other than maybe once on the shared usage path in Mill Creek Park. I didn't know it was still a thing. If I saw them ripping down the sidewa...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I hear ya, but if there's zero enforcement for riding on sidewalks there WILL be backlash when these operators expand. It's happened everywhere else. I don't understand why these scooters create such vitriol? I mean we all know how poor the pedestrian experience has been in kc...i just can't wrap m...

Checked about 7pm and only two in all of downtown.... Assuming they were all out of juice. Pretty impressive.

So Drake has been occupying the new penthouse suite for at least part of his time in KC. Two tour busses and a fleet of SUVs at the ready outside the past few nights.
