GAH. These things are everywhere in Chicago!?!?!?
Truth be told, I’m quite interested in these things from a last mile transport to mobility en mass. As Emergency Managers, we should think about this resource a bit.
Look past the current low level issues of litter and clutter (which should be addressed in short order).
Consider pod resource management and how these escooters could enhance urban evacuation from large metro areas.
Don’t be so close minded. Think about the problem creatively and look to apply current technologies to aid in preparedness and response.
