I used an electric scooter-sharing app to ride around Paris – This is how it works

With the prevalence of crime, dangerous driving, and the lack of infrastructure for both bicycles and electric vehicles, it could easily prove too dangerous or difficult to properly launch a service like Lime locally.
Nice, but yeah this won't work in SA. One big issue is our vast distances to travel between destinations. Not many people both live and work in the inner city, most people commute between suburbs and cities.

Oh and one correction:

I was quite apprehensive about joining the crazed city traffic at first, especially considering I hadn’t been on a scooter in years and drivers in France drive on the right wrong side of the road, but the experience went far better than expected.
