The rise and thousands of falls of Auckland’s Lime scooters

After only about a year, this now-familiar sight is a thing of the past: for safety reasons and I think sheer corporate arrogance, Lime has been banished from Auckland’s streets. We have three or four other scooter choices now.

Lime was first to market, and what a market it is… the dratted things are everywhere, rented by the minute like Lime, but also owned and replacing a car or bike as primary means of transportation. Still kinda fun to ride, but I haven’t made my peace with how it’s all supposed to work on already dangerous streets and crowded footpaths.
