Bird Scooters back in action with new restrictions
STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – You may be able to scoot around Starkville again.
The new Board of Aldermen approved the return of Bird scooters. But this time there is a list of restrictions. The city and the company have to work through an insurance agreement as well.
The scooters have been on-again, off-again after the previous board voted to ban them.
Mayor Lynn Spruill vetoed the ban. But there were enough votes to overrule her veto.
Tuesday night Aldermen voted 4 to 3 to bring the scooters back.
The scooters would be geo-fenced to keep riders off highways and heavily trafficked roads.
