Lime, the 18-month-old, San Francisco-based company whose bright green bicycles and scooters now dot cities throughout the U.S., launched a pilot program in Tacoma, Washington, today, but that tiny victory might have felt short-lived. The reason: on the opposite side of the country, a Lime rider was killed today by an SUV while tooling around Washington D.C.’s DuPont neighborhood. On the one hand, the developments, while unfortunate, can hardly come as a surprise to anyone given how vulnerable riders or e-scooters are. That leaves riders sharing city streets with the same types of giant, exhaust-spewing machines that they hope to increasingly displace. Bird has even publicly offered to help fund new infrastructure that keeps cyclists and scooter riders safer.
