Denver's dockless scooters cause rules confusion, injuries


City officials say they’re researching state and local laws, looking for a way to legalize the use of scooters in bike lanes. State law places toy vehicles alongside “skis, toboggans, coasting sleds (and) skates,” and bans them from the road. “In the meantime, we’re asking riders to watch their speed on the sidewalk and yield to pedestrians at all times,” wrote Nancy Kuhn, a spokeswoman for Denver Public Works.
