Lime's scooter suspension continues while the council is waiting for more info



The Auckland Council is waiting for the latest pieces of a review for the safety and management and processes of electric scooter operator Lime & 39, before deciding whether to lift his suspension.

The Council suspended the Limes license on Friday after a security failure caused the scooter brake to lock was identified damage 30 people in Auckland. It warned the operator to solve the problem if it wanted the scooters to be allowed back on the city's hiking trails.

Auckland Council and Dunedin Council both suspended Lime's license on Friday in increasing security issues after a series of events where the front wheels of e-scooters unexpectedly locked.
