Posted in: Tokyo to start flagging electric scooter users for minor offenses See in context

I think its silly to make escooters classified the same as small vehicles and require registration. That means you would not be able to ride them around the parks because you would be riding a motor vehicle in the park. There are some huge parks down here in Kyushu and Shikoku. I see people using escooters down here round the big parks perfectly safely. They do not go close to others and I see them carefully slow down and even get off when near any busy area. Its a shame that a few idiots with no sense ruin it for everyone else.

I hope others can distinguish this debate on the effectiveness of subsidies from a debate on wealth inequality.

Exactly!!!

@UK9393

You are confusing the issue.

RareReason is right! This is a subsidy.

The debate on whether subsidies are effective or not is a valid talking point. There is an argument to be made for not propping up failing industries, but to be fair, that wasn't RareReason's point of discussion.

This isn't about who can afford to take advantage of a subsidy. A subsidy is encourage spending in a particular area.
