I think I just thought of a solution to electric scooters being a menace to pedestrians. Make them all, by by law, emit a loud, relentless, terribly annoying, noise (including frequencies that tend to penetrate headphones). People will hear them coming, and much fewer people will want to use them!
@clq Oh, the first thing I think of when reading this: be careful with what you wish for… Too many are much to happy with making a lot of noise
@KaiA Good point. It would have to be a noise most young people might hate. My vote would be for 70s-era Genesis.
Or perhaps it could be a loop of Raymond Johansen reciting the rules for using electric-scooters.
