On August 13th, Lime electric scooters launched in Montreal.\nThough the city has put strict regulations in place, many fear that scooters will complicate traffic and create a mess.\nTwitter comments seem to be mostly negative, but some people enthusiastically welcome the new mode of transport.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nOn August 13, Lime scooters officially launched in Montreal. The launch was delayed by several months while Montreal lawmakers decided on the proper way to regulate the new transport option. Many lawmakers were worried about the arrival of the scooters, because in other cities and countries they had been involved in accidents or the scooters had been left to litter the sidewalk.\nThe city of Montreal decided to put in place a framework of rules that would minimize the risk and nuisance that these scooters could cause. However, it appears that very few people are actually following these rules.\nFrom riding without a helmet to parking outside of designated zones, Lime users do not seem to care about the strict regulations in place. And that it making many people very angry.\nDespite having launched only a few days ago, many have taken to social media to post photos of improperly parked scooters.\nMontréal est une ville sale où plusieurs lancent leurs déchets et leurs botch de cigarette par terre. Pensez vous vraiment que ces même abrutis vont faire attention à la manière qu'ils vont disposer de leur scooter électriques...— Frank C (@FrankCourchesne) August 13, 2019\n"Montreal is a dirty city where many throw their garbage and cigarette butts on the floor. Do you really think that these same jerks will pay attention to where they will leave their electric scooters?"\nJust saw a guy putt-putting along on his new @limebike e-scooter down a fairly busy downtown street. W/ no helmet. This scooter was just abandoned on a sidewalk.With a designated parking spot not far away.Then it was rented by some one -with no helmet. And so it begins. #CJAD800 pic.twitter.com/0Z4MnGMoUh— Shuyee Lee (@sleeCJAD) August 14, 2019\nThe infractions go both ways: some have taken to Twitter to show cars intruding on designated Lime parking zones.\nDéjà un véhicule en infraction à proximité de la rue Guy et du boulevard de Maisonneuve.

Super convenient. Looking into buying my own scooter now tbhI haven't tried them in Montreal, but I have in other cities.
