Mobike: five star present
Entrance of Dante Metro station (9 and 11 November 2019).
"La bellezza (?, comodità) del bike sharing senza postazioni fisse consiste nel permettere alle persone (?, agli utenti) di lasciare le biciclette quasi ovunque (very precise!). Vogliamo però (their goodness!) incoraggiare i nostri utenti a parcheggiare in modo responsabile ('from Latin, respons-, past-participle of respondere, answer to', answer to whom?). Mobike deve essere riconosciuta ovunque come sinonimo di responsabilità da parte dei nostri utenti verso la società e l'ambiente (how society and environment call irresponsible mobikers to account?)." (from https://mobike.com/it/blog/post/mobike-a-torino) There's many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip.
Alas! A mobiker forgot 'quasi' (Corso Castelfidardo, November 15, 2019)
CIRC e-scooters: another five star present
I have already caught an e-scooter driving among pedestrians: a motorized vehicle… without license plate! (see below the fight of Tel Aviv authorities against rampant e-scooters).
From CIRC web page: "... leave your e-scooter in a responsible place..." Uh, again the word 'responsible' (see the Mobike section), this time as an adjective of place (?!). Which language they speak? There's many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip. Left: CIRC e-scooters hampering pedestrians (December 19th, 2019). Right: Erratic parking of BIRD e-scooters (December 18th, 2019).
Are e-scooter drivers 'responsible'? (just to abuse ...). Read recent news (November 6th,2019) from Tel Aviv (State of Israel). They call a spade a spade. License Plates to Help Tel Aviv Track Down E-Scooter Delinquents1
