      Or people are dying & the cities are putting the brakes on them...

      Atlanta's mayor put a pause on the city's issuance of permits for smartphone-based electric scooter rentals Thursday following two recent deaths.
      The city had come under pressure from activists in recent days who had protested on Atlanta's streets after a man riding a scooter was run over by a transit bus.
      Giving less of a damn than ever… Can't laugh at the ignorant if you ignore them!

        • Good afternoon,


          On July 29, the City started accepting applications from businesses interested in operating e-scooter, bike, or e-bike shares in Edmonton. Operating permits have now been issued to two vendors and we will likely see e-scooters in Edmonton shortly.



          We wanted to share this with you because we’ve worked with you on bike education or traffic safety in the past and thought you might be interested!


          E-Scooters may travel on:

          Bike lanes

          Shared pathways

          Roads with a posted speed limit of 50km/h or less


          E-scooters cannot be used along sidewalks or unimproved trails in parks

          When parking, there will be no docking stations. It’s important to ensure shared scooters are not blocking doors, travel along sidewalks, or access to important amenities such as fire hydrants or pay stations.


          This blog has great information on where to park and ride E-scooters in Edmonton and detailed information is also available at edmonton.ca/scooters.

          Best,

          • Can't wait to see these things all over the sidewalks - where they are not permitted, and left abandoned all over the place. In other cities that have allowed these, they have become quite a nuisance.
            A people that elect corrupt politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not victims, but accomplices.

              “You have to dream big. If we want to be a little city, we dream small. If we want to be a big city, we dream big, and this is a big idea.” - Mayor Stephen Mandel, 02/22/2012

              • They can be an issue, but hopefull people are more respectful.

                There most definitely will be a learning curve.

                    • How I Learned to Cycle Like a Dutchman

                      In the bike-friendly Netherlands, cyclists speed down the road without fearing cars. For an American, the prospect is thrilling—and terrifying.

                        October 24, 2019

                        The draft network map for the Edmonton Bike Plan is almost complete, but we want to know your key priorities so we can make biking an easier, more enjoyable choice for more Edmontonians.

                        Date: Saturday, November 2
                        Time: 10 a.m. - noon
                        Location: Mill Woods Senior and Multicultural Centre, 2610 Hewes Way NW

                        Date: Tuesday, November 5
                        Time: 6 - 8 p.m.
                        Location: Commonwealth Recreation Centre, 11000 Stadium Road NW

                        Date: Wednesday, November 6
                        Time: 6 - 8 p.m.
                        Location: Crestwood Community League, 14325 96 Avenue NW

                        Workshops will be interactive, hands-on, roll-up-your-sleeves events. You will have a chance to share your input on the draft map and learn about how we’re proposing to move forward in areas that support biking, such as wayfinding and education.

                        Child care and fun activities for children are available. Register for the workshops on Eventbrite.

                        The Edmonton Bike Plan will guide how biking fits into our city in the future, talk about our shared needs and values and support the City’s vision of a connected, healthy and accessible city.
