For those not familiar with ArlNOW's weekly columnists, Peter's column seems to reflect the establishment Democratic point of view, since ArlNOW has a separate "Progressive" column.
    As I recall, Peter's Take was supposed to be the liberal/progessive column to match the conservative one, but Peter came down so conservative on so many issues that they added the Progressive column. Just sayin. Thanks for the article.

And scooters and e-bikes offer transportation to people that dont have or dont want access to cars. Yes the riders dont follow the law all the time and that is unfortunate. The same is true for drivers of large gas powered vehicles and that is unfortunate too.
    Some people are a$$hats and they will be a$$hats on whatever tool they have available to them. Not news, and not a reason to be against escooters generally, in my book.

    Sobering article in the Post about e-scooters maintenance issues, I was surprised to read about the wide open throttle (WOT) problem, as an ebike owner I would have thought these scooters would have motor inhibitors on the brake levers to cut the power each time the rider pulls a brake lever. https://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...=.03f0390e5ab4
