No you're encouraged to take them home. How do you think they keep them charged? You can get credits on the app from bringing it home and charging it.

but its not like "scan qr code, next grab it to home and charge"? if you not scan it (and register as charger it will be propably loud.

also i saw that, lime looks diffrent, it will be harder to get into this.

Probably no single manual, but you can learn how to use raspberry Pi's, and arduinos, and then apply some critical thinking to get it working.
Other than that you could probably try to reflash the firmware with a custom one with a little reverse engineering.

Getting a car really seems like it would help here, maybe even renting or borrowing it from someone, you could muffle the sound with some crap, maybe even a sound proof blanket or something, plus the car itself, could even fire up the stereo for extra noise, then bring it somewhere away from people and rip the battery out.

So these eScooters just lie in city streets, then you put 1 euro in and it allows you to drive?
What prevents you from putting 1 euro in and driving it into a lake?
>>
>>69330508
They would charge you for the cost of the scooter since they know you were the one to drive it into the lake.
Are Europeons really not capable of critical thought?
>>
>>69330508
I think they have some sort of phone app, so they'll have some info on you. Honestly though, they are litter. Pick them up and throw them in the nearest dumpster.
>>
>>69330533
How do they know it was you when you just put 1 euro in? Do they record the user with a camera?
>>
>>69330552
The built in GPS tracks the scooter every minute, so if your account paid for the scooter and was linked with it up until it drove into the lake, they have probable cause to charge you for the cost of the scooter. You agree to this when you create an account.

>>69329285
I went to oxford a couple of months ago and bicycle versions of these were just everywhere like a plague. Just left in the middle of the street.

I really think the bare minimum these companies can do is employ people to go around the city at night and put them in central locations, maybe install bike racks at popular locations for people to leave them. Not just in the goddamn street.

I believe that most cities find these scooters as more of a nuisance than a legitimate service, so they won't let them install racks, or even give a shit if they're destroyed.

All businesses do this. The way I see it is that lime, and bird operate legally, but are unwanted, so even though everyone hates them nobody can legally do anything to stop them, so they just deface, and damage them instead.

there's absolutely nothing wrong with stealing from corporations.

Theft is actually a natural part of capitalism and a consequence of the owner not valuating the asset appropriately. If the item was of value, it would be secured, since it is not secure, it is worthless and it's okay to "steal" it (because it has no value).
>>
>>69331340
ok then, that's fair but you could put them to the side instead of destroying/hacking them
>>
>>69331329
There is no licensing program educating proper and safe use of the vehicles, generally relying on users to ride them responsibly, which they don’t. So not only would You be able to sue the person who killed your grandma, but you could also very easily sue the manufacturer for negligence and a dangerously high speed cap on them. C’mon anon use your brain just like a little bit ok it’s not too hard

No, because they're going to be abandoned on the sidewalk again, as littering is their business model. I will continue to clean up my city by throwing them in dumpsters.

My city just passed a law that makes scooters abide by motorcycle parking laws, meaning they can be parked in the sidewalk as long they don't disrupt the normal movement of pedestrians, and if they do they can be towed away... for the same rates a normal car or motorcycle is towed! So it's around $120 a day. I can't wait to get a few of these for cheap in actions and gut them for cheap batteries and motors.

Personally I just throw them in the dumpster like the other anon. It might be different if they were on a rack.

I don't encourage theft, but I'm confident that you could rent the scooter with a prepaid visa gift card over a pay as you go phone. There'd be noting to link you to the scooter assuming you paid for the gift card and phone with cash. Then you simply take the scooter to a secure location and disassemble it at your leisure.

They'll have the last known GPS coordinates, but if anyone asks about it you just tell them you left it outside and haven't seen it since. Not that they'll have much to contact you with other than the burner phone. To be honest, they're expecting theft and the hours wasted to recover the stolen scooters isn't likely to be worth it to them. The real risk in getting caught riding it, but who's going to know and who's going to care?

It's hard to say what you'll have to do to get the scooter unlocked without looking at it. Worst case scenario involves jamming a microcontroller in it and rewiring all of the controls. In the best case scenario the device is locked down simply by restricting power. If the latter is the case you simply replace their SoC with a switch or button. You might want to sand and repaint too. You wouldn't want someone to try to use your stolen scooter and complain to the original owner that it's busted. You might also want to consider adding security features, but I kinda hope someone steals the scooter from you after you unlock it.

That's literally how you sound. If I'm physically able to take it, it's by definition trash, since it's not secured. This includes any parked vehicle that I can slimjim into and hotwire, they are not secured and thus trash. If you actually cared about your vehicle it'd have self-defense mechanisms to stop me.

Taking an abandoned scooter that nobody owns is completely different.

>>69332288
because like that other anon said, it's a super low cost of entry for the business, once they buy the scooters they're pretty much done, they just sit back and collect cash. Considering those scooters in no way cost more then like $50 in china, they probably pay for themselves in a month

The city considers them a nuisance, and abandoned property. Nobody is going to get fined, ticketed, or see any jail/prison time for doing what they want with these scooters.
>>
>>69332550
>going to jail
That's for poor people.
Then again stealing a scooter is for poor people. So I guess you have a point.
>>
I see these everywhere in Phoenix. Its called "bird" here.
>>
>>69332622
But removing these scooters for any reason including keeping, dismantling, destroying, or disposing aren't considered crimes as long as you're not using them to harm, kill, or steal.
>>
>>69332665
I wouldn't bet on that until there's legal precedence.
>>
>>69329408
abandoned property is not free for the taking. you have to make reasonable attempts to locate the owner and/or turn it into the police station or you will be liable for theft.
>>
>>69332707
My cities consider them as abandoned property, so there will be no legal action.
>>
>>69332755
You mean to say they've made a public statement on this? Source?

this. show me what made up lawless wild west town you live in that has finder's keepers laws. if you accidentally "abandon" property like dropping your wallet or leaving your laptop at a cafe that does not mean it's free for the taking the moment you don't have possession of it that's RETARDED and I know this first hand because I filed a police report on a laptop I left somewhere for 10 minutes and it's a grand theft case now.

Until then I will treat them as what they are - abandoned trash.

Not at all similar. The local government set aside plots of land to be developed and for houses to be built on them and you were given permission to own that land when you bought the house.

Many local governments are just treating these scooters as abandoned property and impounding them and fining the companies that dump them.

Trash can contain sensitive data, you can throw away your credit card, for example. And yes, dump diving can get you in trouble.

As other commentards mentioned would be great if they worked with councils so they weren't dumped on the street.
Councils could convert 1 car bay every approx 100m or 1 per 30 car bays into a generic scooter / bicycle parking and would promote people to start using modes of transport other than driving.

Kiwicon had a talk on Lime scooters basically some guy downloaded their app ran it through an onlime android decompiler. And worked out it sent a hardcoded static string via bluetooth. As long as you knew this string you could unlock any scooter and use without paying (but that would be illegal, so don't do that). Not sure if there are slides or video anywhere.
