Alexandria, VA- Alexandria City Councilor John Taylor Chapman has some serious reservations on the city’s dockless mobility program, namely the fact that it is going to be reviewed this fall. In other words, Chapman doesn’t think that the city should continue with the electric scooter program throughout the summer, and he’s considering joining City Councilor Mo Seifeldein in a suspension of the program.

“I’m very nervous about having no opportunity to change or regulate scooters over the next two months,” Chapman said on The Zebra Podcast this week. “We don’t have another legislative meeting after Tuesday until September. That means all of July and all of August if there are some emergency things that need to be done in terms of policy, council can’t push that.”
