Safety Concerns Drive Seattle E-scooter Policy

Seattle has told the E-bike companies that they will have to wait for permission to operate the E-bike trial projects are completed.  Like most cities, the current infrastructure was not designed for alternative modes of transportation. 

"A little over a year ago, Seattle led the nation, becoming the first major city to open its streets to shareable bikes that didn’t need docking stations and could be left almost anywhere.
A year later, Seattle has taken the opposite tack with a similar technology that’s proven more popular than the bikes."
