In this photo taken May 14, 2018, a man walks past an electric scooter that was dumped into a trash can in San Francisco. Tired of San Francisco streets being used as a testing ground for the latest delivery technology and transportation apps, city leaders are considering requiring businesses to get permits before trying out new high-tech ideas in public.
