Bird is the enabler, but the people are really what will be the reason behind a ban if it happens. The most important regulation, in my opinion is already in place, just not enforced. Don’t ride on sidewalks! I’d prefer that enforcement be more lax to be a judgement call for crowded sidewalks like those around Fayetteville especially during a festival, but that’s what’s giving the program the worse rap right now. There is certainly regulation that would help with placement and possible future law enforcement, but we aren’t enforcing the laws we have so what do more rules really matter?
Also, if you want to help spread the word, I tweeted about this and tried to represent both sides of encouraging adoption of last-mile ride share as well as a PSA. Feel free to share if you desire: https://twitter.com/xtremetoonz/status/1036543633699360768
