The Charlotte Observer shared a few words on scooter regulation from our Executive Director, Shannon Binns.

In response to “Charlotte may allow more e-scooters but with tighter rules on riding them” (Jan. 7):
Members of the Charlotte City Council have an opportunity to be champions for transportation options during their upcoming vote regarding scooter regulations. Charlotte can set an example for other cities in NC by embracing mobility options and ensuring scooter fees are reasonable.
Scooters provide Charlotte residents an affordable and climate-friendly mode of transportation. We believe scooter users simply need the same things as bicycle users: their own safe lanes separated from vehicle traffic and more places to park.
We urge the Charlotte City Council to encourage the use of scooters, given the many benefits they provide.
SHANNON BINNS, CHARLOTTE
