Electric scooters: Marvel or menace?
If they haven't taken over your city yet, they probably will
Paris, Berlin, Dallas, Vienna, Seoul, Mexico City, Lisbon, Madrid, San Diego, Singapore, and Beijing are just a few of the cities that have become home to shared electric scooters in the last year, taking their transport systems for a spin.
