City of Milwaukee committee OKs ordinance to remove Bird Scooters
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee is in a legal battle with the Bird Scooter company and the city is looking to get more than $1.3 million in damages.
At a committee meeting, a city attorney said there have been at least 6,900 scooter rides as of last Friday.
They've gotten complaints from people who cannot see or are in wheelchairs or use walkers.
In one case, the city says a rider hit a pregnant woman. The committee OK'd a proposal to essentially take the scooters off the streets.
The company says it believes Bird Scooters can operate legally in Wisconsin.
