The City of Oakland, California, is making its streets safer for residents with visual and mobility impairments after a class action lawsuit accused it of allowing e-scooter companies to get away with having scooters strewn all over public walkways.
U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria signed off on a class action settlement Thursday that ended claims Oakland had allowed the “deliberate and systemic exploitation” of the city’s walkways for its own profit, and to the detriment of people with disabilities trying to navigate the streets, Law360 reported.
