Some People In LA Are Vandalizing Shared Electric Scooters


Good morning, I'm David Greene. In some cities, people have fallen in love with motorized scooters. You can rent them then ditch them anywhere. But some residents are sick of them. The LA Times reports, they've damaged scooters, thrown them off balconies or in the ocean. They've posted all this on social media, and police have mostly looked the other way.
