SCOTTSDALE (3TV/CBS 5) - The City of Scottsdale just approved an ordinance limited when and how electric scooters can be used with the city limits. Although, most of the ordinance doesn't address the safety factor. Scooters can be rode on the sidewalk as long as the rider yields to pedestrians, and scooters cannot be driven on streets where the speed limit exceeds 35 miles per hour.

[SPECIAL SECTION: Caught Misbehaving]

According to Scottsdale Fire Department, there have been more than a dozen injuries related to scooter crashes. The scooter rental companies strongly encourage riders to use helmets. However, Arizona does not have a helmet law.

Caught Misbehaving with Stanley Roberts exposes individuals who brazenly defy the law or common courtesy, risking social and/or legal consequences. His reports air regularly on CBS 5 News at 10 p.m.

I've heard several times that the new papers have to write to an 8th grade reading level to be in tune with the public. Seems this writer missed by 5 or 6 grade levels.

Oh, and how many of those injuries have ANYTHING to do with helmets preventing them? Most likely NONE as they would be scraped knees and elbows and hands. Just more of the socialist media wanting to pull a big brother again.

How many of those injuries are victims of careless riders and not the riders themselves? I would say most of them.
Also I live at least 25 miles from Scottsdale and there is a rental bicycle and scooter dumped on the sidewalk about two blocks from my house. When will they be picked up or does the homeowner have to dump them in the trash?

WOW! Doesn't anyone proofread anymore? Here, let me help you.
The City of Scottsdale just approved an ordinance LIMITING when and how electric scooters can be used with the city limits...
Although, most of the ordinance doesn't address the safety factor, (COMMA) scooters can be RIDDEN on the sidewalk as long as the rider yields...
Before you ask, yes, I am the grammar police...

"Although, most of the ordinance doesn't address the safety factor." This isn't a complete sentence, as there is no dependent clause. Stanley, while you rightly encourage others to take driver's education, why not take some English classes yourself?

The opening sentence doesn't make sense: "The City of Scottsdale just approved an ordinance limited when and how electric scooters can be used with the city limits."

Please allow me to expose the terrible grammar in this piece. "Rode" is not a word. Every paragraph has one or more grammatical errors, including missing connectives, wrong word choice and incorrect syntax. Yikes!
