    Lime Scooters

    NZ PM Jacinda Ardern says Lime scooter company should pay 'fair share' of tax https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/110859511/jacinda-ardern-says-lime-scooter-company-should-pay-fair-share-of-tax Lime told Stuff on Saturday the bug had already been fixed thanks to a firmware update. "That update has eliminated [the glitch] and will reduce the number of incidents," Mitchell Price, Lime's director of government affairs and strategy, said. Dear Mr Price It is quite obvious why the Auckland Council are reluctant to reinstate Lime's operating license "That update has eliminated [the glitch] and will reduce the number of incidents," I understand Lime was supposed to "Fix" the issue/problem, not merely reduce the number of incidents/injuries! May I suggest first fix the issue and then trial run in the USA where riders are able to sue if injured. Is NZ being used as a testing ground where Lime can't be sued for injuries caused to users/riders of Lime Scooters? Have a great day.

The migraines wouldn't go away and Oliver eventually went to a see a physiotherapist. "That's when I found out about text neck and how much of an issue it is and how many people have it," said Oliver, 18, who graduated from Sydney's St Luke's Grammar School last year. "It's when people are always hunching over and looking at their phones, which leads to a number of problems including neck and shoulder pain and migraines. https://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/apps/110819779/teenager-wants-to-help-fix-your-text-neck
