Bird, Lime, Lyft, Jump and the list is growing day by day. It was not that long ago that I wrote a post about "Bird" & "Lime" and how the local governments need to regulate them. 

Some of you who read my posts consistently know how dismayed I have been with the various “toys” that have been introduced in my market. These “toys” are not just a convenience, rather they are a nuisance at the same time.

First, they are affecting, taxi cabs, Lyft drivers, Uber Drivers, Limo Drivers and the list goes on and on. In all fairness that is a “disruption” some people can live with. What many casual observers might miss out is the “littering” that is taking place all over the West Side of Los Angeles.

The politicians are talking, but not acting on this nuisance. I see many of these “toys” laying on the ground, blocking handicapped access and the list goes on and on. I have heard of serious injuries to pedestrians by the irresponsible Bird & Lime drivers to name a few.www.endrebarath.com

Which brings me to my point the other day I was driving in Santa Monica, CA which is already littered with these “toys” and I notice this new addition “Jump” a bicycle, which is adding to the littering. Then as I was driving around I noticed that they also have taken on Bird & Lime… seriously what will it take to regulate this Companies?

There are other activities I have noticed, that maybe the Police should take a note of, but I will save that for another post. What are your thoughts about this nuisance?

My take is as much as I am not a fan of government regulations. In this instance it is easy  for me to say that Government Regulations are not only needed but required. At the same time people need to be more civilized and  be caring about their environment and their fellow mankind. Just to be clear I do not consider this progress, when you see in front of Restaurants, Condominium Complexes and Apartment Buildings littered with all these new “technologies” I am saddened.

I am all for progress and things that benefic mankind but in this instance,  I do not believe this is good on so many levels.

Not familiar with this Endre, but as you say, it's more about "people need to be more civilized and  be caring about their environment and their fellow mankind"...

Is Lime the green electric lime colored scooters? I'd never heard of those services before until last week one of our cities began the service and then immediately shut it down because of complaints of the scooters littering the sidewalks and getting in the way of handicap walkways and other walkways. They didn't abandon it, just paused it until they could educate the public on uses and figure out how to deal with it. -Kasey

All of these "toys" tried the Dallas market as well Endre Barath, Jr. and have not fared well...I believe we are now down to just one brand of bike, and they will probably not make it either.

Lisa Von Domek  you are lucky you should see what Santa Monica looks like now littered with five different name brand scooters and now this Bike... the rest of the bikes are regulated and have actual pick up and drop off locations all over the city...Endre

I like the concept, Endre.  But something must be done to make the drivers responsible and keep these "toys" in a safe and unobtrusive place as well as use them responsibly.

Endre Barath, Jr. I don't think that the city of Meridian knew what it was getting into until it began and they got tons of complaints and figured they needed to pause it and see how to handle it. We'll see what happens from here. -Kasey

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - When things like this get out of control, real regulations need to become a reality.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. these "services" don't seem to have made it to the suburbs here yet. I've seen some bikes downtown but I'm not there enough to know if they are a problem yet. Interesting subject.

Gabe Sanders  they have Bicycle storage places for the non electric vehicle i.e.: pick up and drop off. This is like the wild west. No respect for pedestrians no respect for Disabled Access points to  side walks and the list goes on an on....Endre
