All,
I was at Florence Rd today and there were 9 Bird electric scooters for rent. If you agree with me that they should not be on the trail, please call Cobb county Parks and Recreation at 770-528-8800 and voice your opinion. I did call and the trail manager happened to be in. He said they are not allowed because they are considered motorized vehicles and whoever did this has no agreement with Cobb County to do so. I am not sure what will be done but I hope they get impounded and a citation written to the company. Obviously just my opinion.

I will try and attach a picture

Somehow, electric scooters don't offend me, probably because there's absolutely nothing intimidating about a scooter. It would get others out on the trail, and I don't think that they would present any kind of hazard. Old folks in powered wheel chairs would also fall into the non-offensive category. Granny rolling down the trail at 4 mph would be nice to see, and get her out of the nursing home. - (I actually saw a very senior citizen rolling down the trail in a powered wheelchair)

Now hoverboards are a different story. They're unstable and dangerous, and girls riding them look awkward and unladylike. -Just not a pretty sight.

-Just my opinion.

Seems totally counter productive (unless Granny type mobility as mentioned above) to get out on the trail on anything motorized anyway...
