Careful With KCMO Soy Boy Transit

BIRD scooters are fun and easy to use, but be careful on KC's bumpy pavement

BIRD electric scooters, the latest app-based mode of transportation, are convenient and a lot of fun, but the devices can mean a trip to the E.R. for riders who are not careful. KMBZ's Jim Cunningham hopped on a BIRD for the first time in downtown Kansas City and quickly covered four miles at a top speed of 15 miles an hour.

And this is the OPEN THREAD for right now . . .


  1. The USDA needs to keep their research centers outside of KCMO city limits as their operating costs will dramatically increase because of Slie rapidly increasing taxes.

    The scooter riding hipsters hitting the potholes probably makes a wonderful comedy clip.

  2. How come the skateboard kids have to go to juvenile court when they get busted skating on the sidewalks but hipsters move back and fourth on the streets and sidewalks and when they get board they trash them on the walkway?

  3. Vano continues to stick with that "it was an accident" defense?

    He accidentally got the gun out of his car? Accidentally chased him down the block? Accidentally called 911 while holding him? Accidentally restrained him again when he tried to get away? Was accidentally aiming the gun at the back of his head? Then the gun accidentally shot him...

    Bullshit. There is a ton of premeditated actions in there.

    The jury should send him to jail and accidentally throw away the key.

  4. when they get board (try "bored")
