I had seen that while in Portland.
Maybe funny, but not cool from a pollution perspective.

How many people thought they had an original idea to throw a scooter in the river. Not a great idea and not very original either.

I heard they found more then they thought would, but I never knew it was so high as 57! A lot of people in town hate the scooters because of the riders actions, but 57, WOW!

if i read the article correctly, there's more out there still, they had to stop at 57 because they ran out of room.

i know a guy who throws those scooters in the river when he comes across them laying around. he's one of those crust punk kids and a portland original and hates anything techy or cash-grabby and is real bitter about the direction portland's going. he's not doing it to be funny or original, but as a passive aggressive way to protest, i guess. i don't agree with it, but whatever
