A reader hails the passage of legislation to regulate electric scooter rental companies, including a requirement that they carry liability insurance. But ….

The snarky reader also notes that Arkansas does not require nursing home operators to carry liability insurance. If granny should try to rent a Lime to get down to an emergency room for treatment of bed sores, the state has her back should an accident happen on account of scooter failure. Granny just best be sure not to speed faster than 15 mph.

Maybe the scooter operators ought to figure out who lobbies for Michael Morton next legislative go-round.
