October 18th, 2007Jamey Fauque no longer parks his scooter at this Arena District bike rack.
Up until a few weeks ago, Jamey Fauque would ride his scooter from his home in Grandview to his job Downtown, parking at a bike rack behind the Frog Bear & Wild Boar Bar in the Arena District.
It seemed a good fit: His 150cc scooter took up little more space than an average bicycle, and a nearby metal rail gave him a place to lock up.
Soon, though, Nationwide Realty Investors, which controls the property, left the following note: “In the future, please do not park scooters or motorcycles in or around the bike racks. NRI has requested that we start warning folks about it. A printed policy will be forthcoming.”
These scooter parking concerns have been echoed elsewhere in the city, as scooters and other two-wheeled automotive alternatives become more popular among residents eager to cut carbon emissions.
