Electric scooter giant recalls more scooters amid fears of them breaking apart

Mi Electric Scooter can do 25kmh and has cruise control. Yes really

The electric scooter company Lime, which has taken the country by storm, has chose to immediately remove one of the company's brands from every city across the globe after determining the scooters could break apart while in use.

The California-based company Lime is actively looking into reports that scooters manufactured by the Chinese company, Okai, may break.

He said Lime has been in contact with the local councils to work through the process of bringing the scooters to the capital. "The vast majority of Lime's fleet is manufactured by other companies and decommissioned Okai scooters are being replaced with newer, more advanced scooters considered best in class for safety".

This recall follows a Lime recall last month of Segway Ninebot scooters whose batteries were reported as "smoldering or, in some cases, catching fire".

Mr Goff said the e-scooter companies had not helped fund the council's safety campaign, but they would be encouraged to promote their own safety messages.

A string of diplomatic meetings are now being lined up to take place if Mrs May survives her Cabinet meeting at 2pm today. He added: "It's not enough for May to secure support for her deal from Cabinet, or even from Parliament".

An urgent memo sent to councillors advised them not to crackdown on the scooters, but instead roll-out an education campaign around safety.

The city began a pilot project with 100 e-scooters in October.

Two more companies, Wave and Onzo, are set to launch another 1500 e-scooters before the end of the month.

Users can rent a LimePod in the company's app, similar to renting a bike or scooter share.

Meanwhile, a bylaw might need to be changed to allow electric scooters to travel in cycle lanes.
