How not to park a scooter …

An electric scooter from Lime lays half submerged in the creek alongside the Shoal Creek Hike and Bike trail this morning. Pam LeBlanc/American-Statesman

Check out this electric scooter I found abandoned in Shoal Creek near Fifth Street this morning.

I’m pretty sure half submerged and ditched in a creek alongside a hike-and-bike-trail doesn’t fit the recommended parking guidelines for dockless electric scooters, but there you have it.

I ride my bike to work three to five times a week, and my commute takes me up the Shoal Creek Hike-and-Bike Trail. I’ve seen a dozen or so scooters left on the trail in the last month or two, but this is the first I’ve spotted in the actual creek.

It looks like it’s from Lime, one of the companies that released a fleet of dockless scooters and bikes across the city.

Uncool, people. Uncool.
