    Don't worry. They got away now with few/one witness, but criminal like that wouldn't be happy with one time hit. They repeat the same performance until they get caught, and this won't take very long.

    I think the solution to scooters being vandalized is driverless technology; so they don't clutter the sidewalks. Once ridden they can scoot and go drink some power somewhere else.
