People don't like the little Smart Cars

Daimler, the German car maker will stop selling the little Smart Cars in America next year because Americans don't like them.

People who want a small car for a quick trip prefer to take Uber's, which is easier and in many cases cheaper. And here with the free trolley and the Freebee, it makes no sense to use the car for local runs.

Remember when we were flooded with them? These little Cars2Go took up all the parking spaces in the Grove by dumping them in the Center Village, which of course, no one used, so they took up valuable spaces all day.

The big thing these days are the scooters. The Bird scooter company now had a plan where you can rent them for $24.99 per month for unlimited use. I'm not sure how the monthly plan will go over, but the minute-by-minute plan seems to work great around here; any time of day or night you can see people on scooters around the village and many ride in pairs or groups. The normal rate is $1 to unlock the scooter and then 10 to 30 cents for every minute of riding.

With the monthly service, the scooter will be brought to you, so you don't have to search them out like you do with the minute rate.
