Re: “Mobility and Equity

I have watched the scooter onslaught of Oakland since the morning after the first 500 were unceremoniously dumped on the street. I spent much of the past year and a half recuperating from double knee replacement requiring me to walk slowly and carefully with a hiking stick. Never did I think sidewalks could become more dangerous than they already were from thoughtless speeding bicyclists. Was I wrong!! Im better now and I walk a LOT. I have observed danger to pedestrians (disabled or not) from inexperienced, thoughtless, speeding and/or well under the age of 18 riders on the sidewalks is way worse than from bicycles or skateboards. If scooters are in bike lanes, rare except for commuters, they often speed through red lights endangering pedestrians in crosswalks not to mention their non-helmeted selves at 20 mph. Never have I seen any enforcement by anyone from the scooter companies. The only enforcement is from an occasional pedestrian yelling or muttering This is a sidewalk not a bike lane. Ive been in one other city - Austin Tx - where the scooter riders seemed better behaved. Oakland has not gotten it together in any way shape or form with enforcement or regulation of scooter use. And frankly my expectations in this regard are LOW.

Re: “Mobility and Equity

The sidewalk riding prohibition needs to be enforced. Yes. Without burdening the 'low income' riders with steep fines. What is the solution? Compulsory community service, EVEN for the rich kids? Or?

Re: “Mobility and Equity

The newbie scooters get better transit justice than the disabled and the disability rights movement got going in the seventies. When will the disabled see just transit options?

I bet most people who are not in wheelchairs don't know how abysmal public transit is for wheelchairs. Sure Alemeda has a program to transport folks in wheelchairs. We can make appointments but these buses can be several hours late. And these disabled-access buses also sometimes phone to say "we aren't coming" and they do this when the wheelchair-bound has a medical appointment. Too bad. The staffing is inadequate so I guess the pay is inadequate.

Oh, and yes, I can use the regular buses. The ramps to get on and off AC transit buses is not close to a good angle for wheelchair riders. Few bus drivers seem to have ever been trained to take into consideration where they park the bus before using that ramp. Where the . . . .

I was out in Oakland today. I just couldn't cope with the pain of all the bumps so I cancelled my plans. Ouch ouch ouch.

Opting to ride in the street is quite unsafe, I know, but I regularly roll in the street because it is the only way to get past the too-damaged-for-me-to-ride-on-sidewalk reality. . .

Re: “Mobility and Equity

No helmets required on these things in Oakland. Tisk tisk.

I live in Berkeley but I have been at a skill nursing facility for some rehab so I am rolling around in N. Oakland, near its downtown, in my power wheelchair. I see these scooters ridden in sidewalks every day I am out in Oakland.

What rankles me about Oakland's alleged claim, by just one administrator, that Oakland wants equitable transpotation. This surprised me because Oakland sidewalks and ramp curves at corners for wheelchairs are shockingly treacherous for wheelchair bond citizens. There are many blocks, maybe one out of three, that are literally impassable by a wheelchair so I have to go back, often for an entire block, and scan for a place to cross.

It is galling to come upon construction blocking the sidewalk while I see bicyclists on the always smooth and well maintained bike lanes.

Are bikers more important than disabled people? It looks like Oakland thinks so.

The disgraceful condition for wheelchair dependent folks can cause me actual and avoidable pain because sometimes the best option is still full of guts and holes and bumps. Every bump in my chair hurts me but the bikers have smooth lanes?

It is completely unacceptable, and would not cost the city anything (but would cost the construction biz) to more carefully insist that when construction impedes a sidewalk for wheelchair users, it does adequate reparation, even temporary repration, of the sidewalk. And, wake up, it is not enough to put an orange cone on a hole. REquire notices at the end of the blocks so wheelchair users know the sidewalk is untraversible? Require more prompt repairs.

I have gotten to know the sidewalks closest to my rehab place so I know which blocks are not passable but it isn't always easy to find an alternative.

We all like to think we have made great strides in disabled access but sidewalks full of large holes, street corner ramps for wheels that are rutted and full of holes and lumps. . . these things keep many disabled from going out into the world.

I am angry that the east bay seems to take great care to provide safe bike lanes without providing decent access to the disabled.

Re: “Berkeley City Council Bans Natural Gas Hookups in New Construction

HOW STUPID!!!!

This ordinance will cause deaths ... why??? My daughters home caught on fire do to an electrical stove. They were in the mist of cooking diner when the electricity went off. It stayed off for more than an hour. They got hungry and left to get diner. When they came back the electricity had come on and the food on the stove started a fire. Yes, they forgot to turn off the stove & remove the food. How many others will make the same mistake??? Never would have happened with a gas stove!!!

Plus now residents will pay far more in utility bills than with gas.

Re: “Criminalizing the Unsheltered is Not the Solution to Oakland's Housing Crisis

>> Oakland, California should not be only for the wealthy<< PLEASE...
Yes lie has changed in Oakland. The majority of people in Oakland are not by a long shot wealthy. They are accumulating wealth through homeownership.
However that has come overtime many years of continual ownership.

Back to the article. The author has a list of accomplishments & titles ... so she is well educated. I say ... RELOCATE!!! It sounds like Utah would be a good fit.
My problem with the homeless is two different sets of treatment for them and other citizens. I can liter without being ticketed nor urinate anywhere.
No matter how many Affordable units are built for the 4,000. There will over time be another 4,000 needed. How in the world do we keep up with the demand? Who pays for all this? Where is the land for all these units? Utah has vast spaces of buildable land. Not so in Oakland. We are maxed out, unless we build UP!!! Again who pays.

There are far more affordable ares in America than the Bay Area. Stockton & other outlining areas have plenty of land for growth. Again RELOCATE!!! You can even buy homes or build with no money down grants from our USDA programs. They'll even help pay the mortgages. But you won't go there ... because you want to stay here in Oakland. That is the problem ... homeless think they have rights they don't have. Hey, I want to live in Piedmont ... you think they'll go for this crap???

You are aware of the Ghost Ship fire? That could have happened in your community then you would be suing the City. There are laws that we must abide by in order to insure your homeless community members are safe.

Your desire to be in a homeless situation is your choice. Affordable homes can be had in places like Ohio for as little as $30,000. Or Detroit under $10,000. Here is a link to homes some for sale at $1,000!!!
I do wish you well ... https://buildingdetroit.org/properties/

Re: “Berkeley City Council Bans Natural Gas Hookups in New Construction

Let's see... High rise building blocked in Berkeley due to shading of existing single family PV installations -- No high density building. Check. Cheap home energy blocked by legislation. -- Check

Taking bets someone has stock in utilities that benefit from this legislation.

Re: “Mobility and Equity

In W. Oakland, youth on rented scooters mug people. As a disabled person, I am tired of scooters blocking sidewalks, and having to dodge scooters and cyclists on the sidewalk. At least the sidewalks will be safe during Burning Man, when W. Oakland is hipster free!

Re: “Three Oakland Businesses on Creating a New Workplace Culture

remember, whether or not a customer gets flagged as a sexual harasser at this restaurant is largely subjective and depends on how they're perceived by the restaurant staff. a young attractive man will probably be a lot less likely to be flagged than one who is unattractive and old. also totally harmless interactions from a genuinely innocent customer could potentially still be perceived as sexual harassment by the staff, especially considering the prevalence of outrage culture and third wave feminism in society today. This means that men are more likely to be discriminated against at this supposedly all-inclusive restaurant and men who would never dream of sexually harassing anyone could still end up being wrongfully branded as creeps, humiliated and have their reputations soiled. People who are discriminated against at this restaurant as a result of this emotional and illogical policy will receive a lower quality of service and that isn't ok. I don't know why anyone would support a restaurant that actively engages in such discriminatory, emotion-driven practices that aren't rooted in reality. It's one thing to flag a customer who is clearly sexually harassing your staff in violation of existing sexual harassment laws, it's an entirely different story to trust your employee's gut feelings alone and brand anyone they don't like as a creep, whether or not they actually did anything inappropriate.

Re: “Mobility and Equity

Tell me how these companies are enforcing rules. Seriously, how?

Lyft has it written right on their scooters - so clearly that I, someone who's never even gotten on one can see it - that you need to stay off the sidewalk and yet these people come racing down the sidewalk on scooters with zero regard for people (and dogs walking on them).

They're not going to make any real attempt to keep people off the sidewalk on these things until lawsuits start popping up. (Or, a scooter rider hits the wrong person on the sidewalk and gets their ass whooped - or worse - and the media takes notice.)
