CA Cities Buy Electric Scooters as Green Transit Option — People Are So Annoyed They Light Them on Fire

Several cities around the United States invested in electronic scooters as a method of transportation — and some Southern California residents find them really annoying. 

The scooter company Bird founded an Uber-like ridesharing company for the green transportation. Since the fad of scooters took off, many people can’t help but joke about them:

Although scooters may have been on the receiving end of many Millennial jokes, that is not the only problem they cause.

According to the Los Angeles Times, many locals are frustrated with the traffic disruptions and find the scooters to be annoying.

Some find them to be so annoying, in fact, that they have started to take matters into their own hands. The electric scooters face death by fire, drowning, and other methods of revenge by frustrated locals.

An Instagram account, aptly named BirdGraveyard, captured many examples of people taking out their frustrations on the poor scooters:

Several council members in Southern California cities have started to hear their annoyed constituents.

Santa Monica’s City Council recently implemented a cap on the number of scooters available. In Beverly Hills, the scooters are under a six-month ban, and Los Angeles Councilman Paul Koretz asked his fellow officials to ensure that “all available measures” are used to prevent the scooter’s availability in the city.
