@kensanata wow yeah that sucks. I believe that even for people who rely on their vision these scooters in the middle of the sidewalk are a break in a conversation, a thought and so on. It is distracting if you have to walk around these things all the time.
I would be annoyed if personal bicycles would be in the way on a sidewalk a lot, but I don't see that too much here. It's rare that I (not blind though) have to walk around bikes.
There are photos of Finnish main streets from the 1950s where bikes are casually parked on the edge of drive lanes, but then ”something happened” (read: all space was allocated to cars) and nowadays nobody would ever dream of parking there.
Polyglot City is the right instance for you, if you're interested in linguistics, languages, language learning and translating, or if you are multilingual or polyglot. All languages are allowed to flourish on our timelines. And of course you're free to talk about anything else besides languages, too. Make this your personal home!
