    I yielded to an e-scooter today.

    Yesterday an e-scooter rider couldn't stop for some reason and rammed into the bulletproof glass at our guard building. He came up with his face all bloody.

    There, now I've talked about e-scooters.

    Quartz had an interesting article on the lifespan of Bird Scooters in Louisville, KY.
    https://qz.com/1561654/how-long-does...data-suggests/

    The authors found that the average scooter had a lifespan of 28.8 days and traveled 163.2 miles over 92 trips. They also estimated that Bird lost $293 per scooter.

    I recall reading somewhere that someone analyzed Lime data in DC and estimated those scooters lasted about 28 days.

    I like that scooters are getting people out of cars and provide another great option for short trips. I'm a little concerned about how much waste might be involved.
