Lime scooters lobbying efforts.

I just received this email and I’m unsure how I feel about this…

On the one hand it’s a bit chaotic, on the other it’s very convenient, and allows more people to find alternative transportation methods compared to the Metro/Taxis/Uber.

But emailing your customer base without giving them facts is equivalent to sharing fake news and masking ‘opinion-as-fact’ in a way that is reminiscent of US Republicans and far-right politicians.

I believe more strongly in Regulate It than in Ban It.

Plus, the real problem in my mind lies with people, not in the devices themselves. There are lots of examples of things that don’t work here in France due to people being too selfish or individualists.
