one thing is for sure

the picture in the article is wrong

just before the end of the year they banned the Scooter looking ebikes from bike paths, they are still legal, but only on roads

on that picture it's as if every one was riding off from the side walk on those e-Scooters, and those things are damn heavy, i've checked out quite a few models of them

definitely dangerous to ride that on a side walk or bike path

Bikes: This list got too long: several ‘bents, an urban utility e-bike, and a dahon D7 that my daughter has absconded with.

That picture was clearly taken in China. People ride scooters and motorcycles, drive cars, play bad-mitten, and set up shop on the sidewalks; frequently all at the same time.
