    The Hutt is streets ahead of Wellington on this one. Why are we waiting?

    possibly the same reason we don’t have Paxsters here?

    Give ’em six months and some hospitalized pedestrians and they’ll be pulled.

    I’m waiting to see how this goes. I walk everywhere in the Hutt (walked out to Gracefield and back for work today) and saw a couple of these in use. One person blazing at full speed down the footpath seemed pretty dangerous to me. Fortunately, I was on the opposite pavement.

    Do you have to look both ways when you come out of your front gate?

    I don’t see how these can be allowed on the footpath and why they are not allowed in designated bike lanes! As a pedestrian I’m not that keen on competing for space..

    Id rather be hit by a limescooter than a car & every person on a lime scooter is one less motorist.

    All micromobility causing problems on footpaths (scooters, bikes, skateboards, segways, etc) is a smoking gun for “there is lots of latent demand for rori iti (little roads)”

    so let’s get on and build them already! Widen footpaths, delineate (e.g. with a lip) dedicate space that’s only for slow-moving / vulnerable / pausing people, and voila – rori iti, and see everyone get flowing!

    Why aren’t these riders required to wear helmets. I have seen them on the road going at quite a speed and weaving in and out between cars. They are a danger to others and themselves and it wont be long before someone is seriously hurt. I hope the councils are well insured.

    These limeys are not car drivers most are bus commuters and do not reduce number of motorists.
