    They probably have been around for years but are new to the dockless shared fleet and I was not impressed by the WAMU writer's choice of moniker.

    I was speaking to a woman at my synagogue who is an occasional bike rider. She used to bike commute downtown before her job location changed, but recently rode in on a weekday to meetings. She reported that it felt much more comfortable for her than it had been a few years ago, because it seemed the presence of all the scooters made drivers more cautious "tilted the balance".

    I don't ride downtown on weekdays much myself, and don't know of any data, but this seems significant to me.

    If it is DIY, it is very well done. It was on two corners of this intersection. I had not noticed this anywhere else downtown, but then I wasn't looking. DC peeps, what say you?
