Poll: Do you think Lime scooters should return to Auckland streets?

Neighbourly.co.nz

It will be at least another 24 hours before Lime e-scooters will be allowed back on Auckland streets. But do you think they should return?

Hundreds of scooters were removed from the streets of Auckland and Dunedin on Friday due to safety concerns over a software glitch.

The glitch caused e-scooter wheels to randomly lock up, leaving some riders with broken bones and smashed faces after they were thrown off mid-ride.

Do you use them? Should Lime e-scooters return?
