Bird’s skid detection helps catch reckless scooter riders

by Jeremy

The alerts promise to boost safety for both riders and neighborhoods. It’ll increase the chances your next ride has healthy brakes and tires and should discourage joyriders who might hurt others. The company isn’t alone in detecting scooter abuse. Lime uses an accelerometer and speed info to tell when you’re riding on the sidewalk, for instance.

Unlike its rival, though, Bird is using Skid Detection for enforcement. That might not sit well if you dislike the thought of a scooter service judging your rides, even though there isn’t someone constantly watching your performance. However, Bird is betting that more customers will feel at ease knowing that fewer rogue riders are on the streets.
