Ignoring the alarmist article which confuses several separate points the question to ask is why is an escooter different to a bicycle? In particular say, an ebike?
Surely the same laws should apply?
Seems to me that pretty much all the points in the article apply to bicycles too.
The only exception are the scooter schemes with scooters being abandoned everywhere.
However that's an easy thing to legislate against, simply insist they be docked.
Plus imo a scheme that has dockless scooters (and ebikes) has no longevity because if nothing else such a scooter is a good source of fairly expensive batteries plus I suspect the attrition rate by other means is more than a little high...
