Underage Rental eScooter Riders Are Creating The Future

The secret life of teen scooter outlaws

Angelica, for instance, said she didn’t want to pay for car insurance or to sit in LA’s notorious traffic on her way to waitress at a seafood restaurant on the Santa Monica Pier. If she got a bike, she was too afraid it would get stolen. Instead, she preferred to commute on a Bird scooter every day to work this summer, and when Bird turned off its service at night, she came home on a Lime scooter. She also rode to the movies or with friends to get tacos, racking up 250 rides on Bird and 150 on Lime this summer alone.

We’re out of our cars, they’re much cheaper than Ubers, and you look pretty cool,” said Angelica, who only wanted to use her first name.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

Underage, illegal, but these are the people who will shape the future of traffic.

It’s all happening now.
