Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that electric scooters are a thing now and Detroit has taken it too damn far.
Earlier this week tech company Lime deployed dozens of scooters on the streets of Detroit in direct competition with billion dollar Santa Monica start-up, Bird, which rolled out their Detroit pilot program in July.
Not only has the trend been knocked down a few pegs on the cool-o-meter thanks to GOP gubernatorial candidate Bill Schutte, who took to Twitter to praise the scooter trend without the required protective headgear, looking every bit like a Steve Buscemi meme. He's not the only one disobeying scooter regulations (hell, even we flirted with danger during our test ride) but this daredevil takes the cake.
