Whether you love an electric boost when zipping around the city’s streets or you’re frustrated with people zooming past too close for comfort, check out this debate on the controversial vehicles and their future in Denver.

One year after scooters arrived in Denver, the city will finalize new rules for the vehicles. City Council is expected to make them a permanent part of the city’s streets and sidewalks later this month.
