Solutionist justification for toy

“E-scooters are a fast and convenient form of transportation and help to lessen traffic congestion, especially in dense, high-traffic areas,”

Nope, there's no evidence to demonstrate that scooter journeys replace car journeys. Instead the evidence points to scooters replacing public transport, walking and cycling but also new journeys for generation fun. So more traffic. Oh, and the average life expectancy of the non-recyclable toy is 12 - 8 months.
