15mph is already their maximum speed. Downhill you can get a little faster depending on the model, but the newest ones do limit even that speed.

I still prefer walking. Those scooters are all over and some people leave them wherever they want. For the most part though, people are responsible with it.

The bikes, similar to Relay Bike Share, will be required to be locked up to a fixed object; bike racks, sign post, etc.

Scooters must provide 5 feet on sidewalks for pedestrians... although Atlanta doesn’t even provide sidewalks, yet alone five foot sidewalks. Smh.

15mph is also a joke, especially if they are navigating while on the streets.
it’s let alone, not yet alone. And sidewalks are virtually everywhere in the city limits. No need to shake your head. Just open your eyes.

Oh...yeah...I forgot about those. Well that's good. I'm just glad they won't be ridden on sidewalks. I'm always having to pay attention to what's behind me now because of people riding the scooters so fast.

If they’re not geofenced (and I highly doubt they are, I’m sure you’re going to continue to see them on sidewalks.

Geofencing won't even work for that. Not without a whole battery of sensors like you'd need for an automated car.

Ok, school me. Aside from some residential streets in cul de sac type neighborhoods, where in this city are the streets that have no sidewalks.
