According to CNN, with financial growth, Bird Rides are wheeling along sidewalks in large cities across the USA. The handy electric two-wheelers go up to 15 miles per hour, are rented via a computer app, usually cost $1 to unlock and 15¢ per minute to ride. In your travels, and if your seasoned citizen’s body is in good physical shape, consider giving a scooter a ride as you tour big city streets.

While many enjoy the economy, convenient transport and availability, not all are pleased about scooters scooting along busy city sidewalks. For the elderly, handicapped and families with small kids, there's need to dodge the speedy vehicles, as well as collisions. Also, because the scooters can be left almost anywhere after use, there’s danger, especially at night, of tripping over them on darkened sidewalks.
