San Francisco will allow 750 more electric rental scooters onto the streets Sunday as the second phase of a pilot program rolls out.
That brings the total number of scooters allowed in the city to 3,250. It’s a mark of cautious approval for a clean but controversial technology, which still leaves people worried about illegal sidewalk riding and injuries. “I would say so far, not bad, compared to ‘scooter-geddon’ of last year,” Supervisor Aaron Peskin said, comparing the unregulated scooters that swarmed city streets in spring 2018 to an apocalypse. “Although there is still some sidewalk riding and still some injuries, all in all the rollout has been going well.” ~
