Well, being charged and being found guilty are two very different things.

Not saying she is or isn't guilty, they just haven't gotten to that yet.

On June 21, 2019 at 6 p.m., the City of Atlanta is implementing a Reduced Speed Zone along the portion of the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail between Monroe Drive and DeKalb Avenue to ensure safe operations of shareable dockless mobility devices during congested periods. Within the Reduced Speed Zone, devices will be geofenced and limited to 8 mph when in operation along the multi-use trail.

The Reduced Speed Zone will be in effect on weekday evenings (Monday – Thursday, 6 p.m. – 6 a.m.), weekends (Friday at 6 p.m. – Monday 6 a.m.), and state holidays (6 a.m. – 6 p.m.). This will include the upcoming Fourth of July holiday.

Additionally, the City has recommended that operators implement a Transition Zone within 150 feet of the trail to allow users to safely approach, enter, and cross the Reduced Speed Zone.

I think that all wheeled devices should be held to the same level of enforcement.

I think the geofencing thing is all electronically/automatically enforced based off of the location—the shared devices must have a limiter built in (that would include the shared electric bikes). Can’t really do that with a non-shared, or human powered device.

For scooter-commuter Katherine Norton, the plans to repurpose some lanes and streets for alternative transportation is music to her ears.

"When people start adopting alternative forms of transportation, the city, it's only going to get better from there," said Norton.
