Uber has launched an electric scooter safety campaign in Tampa. They own one of the new scooter companies downtown.
The director of the city’s transportation department said there are now about 900 scooters around the city and they have been very popular. With the increased usage, however, there have also been a number of issues and complaints.
People are riding in the middle of the streets and passing pedestrians very quickly without any warning. E-scooters are only allowed on sidewalks and cannot be operated in streets, bike lanes or restricted areas, like the Riverwalk.
Uber will soon be implementing a safety program to help riders learn the proper ways to operate and negotiate Tampa streets.
Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny.
That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards.
After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind.
He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex.
He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
