E-scooters are a menace

Dear Editor:

Walking along the Hoboken esplanade on Sinatra Drive near the pier, I was almost run over by a gang of youths joy riding at high speed on their rental e-scooters. And this was not in the designated bike lane but on the pedestrian walkway, with no police or any other law enforcement in sight to stop such activities.

To make yet another buck that they can find new ways to spend, the Hoboken city administration and City Council are endangering the health and lives of the citizenry of this town.
