Has the issue of sidewalk parking by scooters been addressed? I was assessed a $65 ticket for parking on the sidewalk. While other unlicensed scooters were not assessed, the fact that I have properly licensed my bike encouraged ticketing. While ridership increases, to the great benefit of the city, reasonable parking options are not widely available. Is this topic earnestly under discussion? Are there plans to expand beyond the single area in Back Bay currently serving as the lone beacon of sense regarding this issue? I would like to be able to keep riding, keeping costs down and helping to alleviate traffic. All I ask is that I can park near work with a price tag commiserate with my vehicular impact, and not risk an outrageously priced parking violation. Thank you.
