Bird scooters: Great new transport or dangerous nuisance?

Hosted by  • 

Bird scooters started in Santa Monica in September, and now the electric scooter sharing app operates in seven cities. Some people are annoyed that their streets have been cluttered with scooters. Others are worried about safety. There’s also competition with other apps, which means even more scooters on the streets. We speak to the chief legal officer of Bird scooters and also ask: what happens if a kid gets hurt on one of his scooters?
