Lime will now force scooters to SHUT DOWN if ridden over pride flag crosswalk in Spokane

Lime has now set their rental scooters to shut down if they are ridden over the pride flag crosswalk in Spokane, Washington in order to prevent anyone from creating skidmarks on the crosswalk with the scooters.

Here’s more from The Publica:

Lime, a popular electric scooter and bike rental service, has announced it will be implementing a “no-go zone” around a crosswalk painted with a large Pride flag mural in Spokane, Washington. The crosswalk has become the center of much discussion after the arrest of multiple teens for making skid marks on the painted pavement.

On June 6, the Spokane Police Department announced the arrest of three teenagers on charges of 1st Degree Malicious Mischief, all in relation to the alleged vandalism of a Pride flag-painted crosswalk at the intersection of Howard Street and Spokane Falls Boulevard.

According to the press release, “911 received a complaint advising multiple subjects on scooters were causing damage to the newly painted Pride mural.”

The release continued: “Officers observed widespread damage as black scuff marks consistent with scooter wheels were observed across the entirety of the mural. The area is clearly marked to keep traffic away as it was just re-painted to repair previous damage.”

Just after these three were arrested for desecrating this ‘holy’ mural, several others were seen riding on it with Lime scooters:

Of course, Lime and Spokane are now being mocked for painting a pride flag mural on a busy street in the first place:
