E-SCOOTER APOCALYPSE NOW? The promises and perils of micro-mobility.

Only appearing in Riga last year, electric kick scooters have now taken the city by force after the first sharing services began to operate this spring. By the end of summer there are already 5 companies offering short term rides in a city perfect for scooting, yet with zero infrastructure for riding of any kind. It rises many opportunities for micro-mobility as well as many problematic situations for safety. Is the e-devil on two wheels as black as it's painted, or is it the future of faster, quieter and more breathable cities?
