Some wag had tossed one of the new electric scooters into the bay next to the Embarcadero. This illustates one of the problems with which the city must contend. Scooters are left in all kinds of bad places, such as blocking a sidewalk or the entry to a store.

A man looked at his phone while bent over one of three scooters parked outside the Greyhound Bus office. If he were to walk off, these scooters would partly block the sidewalk.
