California BIRD Scooter Accident Lawyers
Cities around the United States have come to embrace bike-share and scooter-share programs. Bird is one of the leading competitors in this industry and peeked the attention of consumers when its sizable black electric scooters began appearing in cities all over the place.
Bird is designed with simplicity in mind: if you download the company’s app onto your smartphone and pay a fee, you can ride around town on an electric scooter. Riders are charged a fee of $1 to rent plus an additional 15 cents per minute that the scooter is unlocked. Depending on how far you need to travel, renting a Bird scooter can be a lot cheaper than calling an Uber or a Lyft. Because the scooters are electric, you don’t have to worry about exerting any energy to operate them.
It can be really convenient to have access to electric scooters at your fingertips. What makes Bird even more inviting to consumers is the fact that the scooters are dockless, so riders save time looking for specific places to lock and leave them. Unfortunately, there are some downsides to dockless scooter services.
The biggest issue is that because dockless scooters don’t have to be physically located in a designated area in order to be locked and left behind, riders are free to leave them wherever they please. Although this is fast and easy riders, everyone else is greatly inconvenienced. Scooters have been left on sidewalks, in front lawns, on the side of the street, and in all sorts of other inappropriate places.
