E scooter roll-out sparks crackdown

Bike- and scooter-sharing company Lime, which failed to remove its electric scooters from footpaths on the Australian Gold Coast after a warning from council, has had them confiscated less than 24 hours since rolling them out.

The launch of the Lime scooters on the Gold Coast on Friday, which was not approved by council, has sparked a crackdown on all electric scooters with 22 Lime and one I-Ride products being taken by council.

Lime scooters were placed on the Gold Coast on Friday after a trial that launched in Brisbane and a trial of electric bikes in Sydney last month. The service is available in Auckland, Christchurch, and Upper and Lower Hutt.
