Shared scooters from Bird and Lime have been in my city for awhile now. I’ve started paying attention to ones left in abnormal place and realized they don’t move. The one in the picture has been there for over 6 months!

At what point are these shared scooters considered abandoned?

”Abandoned” property is defined by State Law.
Where I live, that scooter would not be considered abandoned.
Assuming its still bears badges or otherwise its owner can be identified. Its not abandoned until good faith effort is made contacting its owner to notify them of its location. Then after a period of time elapse, if its owner not responded or denied owning it, then its legally abandoned.

Thanks, but I don't think that saying "Just ask Bruh Crubby, he says its legit AND he knows" would hold up as a legal defense...

5 days on public property; 30 days on private property.
This is legit, I know.

We had an armored car spill money on the roadside last night and they want the people who help clean the littered roadside to give the money back and are citing this:

A person commits the offense of theft of lost or mislaid property when he comes into control of property that he knows or learns to have been lost or mislaid and appropriates the property to his own use without first taking reasonable measures to restore the property to the owner.
