Nashville has a scooter problem

By: William B.

When I get ready to go out and play my music when I’m on my wheelchair walker, people on the scooters got them parked in the middle or laying flat down in the middle of the sidewalk. There have been as many as four in the middle at once. I’m 100 percent disabled and it kind of hurts me to pick up one of those scooters and move it, but I have to if I want to get by. I can’t catch myself. My balance is getting bad. I’ve been getting hurt. I’ve actually went to the hospital a couple of times from falling. Every time someone had to help me up. I could not get up. I was stunned good. 

It’s something I deal with every day. The scooters are beginning to be a big problem. I feel like something needs to be done about this crap. People are disrespecting disabled people  and senior citizens here in Nashville, and most of them are coming in from out of town. I think I’m going to go to the mayor’s office about it. I’m not a person to sit back and let things be done to me and not say something. I don’t do nothing against the law to do it — I get it done through the law. Now that I’m being disrespected with these scooters it’s time for me to take a stand and say something.
