Motor Scooter Companies, San Diego Are Violating the Americans With Disabilities Act, Lawsuit Claims

by Elizabeth Cassidy

Disability Rights California has filed a lawsuit in federal court over public-use motorized scooters in San Diego. The rights group claims the scooters violate the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) because they’re often left strewn about sidewalks and other public pathways, preventing safe and easy passage for those with disabilities as required by law.

The class-action lawsuit names two scooter companies, Bird and Lime, as well as the city of San Diego. The scooters are left blocking accessible pathways, so the city is failing to meet its ADA obligations, Ann Menashe, Disability Rights California attorney told The Mighty.
