Look Out, Ann Arbor! Spin Scooters Arriving On A Sidewalk Near You

Spin Scooters

Ford announced it will be rolling out 200 Spin Scooters in Ann Arbor this summer, claiming that the city is a good market because of the designated bicycle lanes. Those lanes have been slow to materialize and are widely disrespected by motorists, often to the peril of cyclists. Scooters are not new to Ann Arbor: dozens of Bird Scooters were confiscated in September, 2018 because of parking violations. Now, pedestrians must brace themselves for a new flock of electric scooters. Although it is illegal to ride either scooters or bicycles on sidewalks in Ann Arbor, the law is not enforced and pedestrians regularly have to contend with both, particularly near campus. A college student navigating traffic on foot with a coffee in one hand and a smartphone in the other can be amusing. On wheels, less so. Drivers and pedestrians beware.
