In 2018, after dropping off 100 e-scooters unannounced in Milwaukee, Bird discovered the hard way that Wisconsin state law did not permit motorized scooters on streets and sidewalks. City attorneys were quick to scold the company, and Bird left as quickly as it arrived.
Then, in an about-face, Wisconsin legalized electric scooters a year later. Around this time, Johnson created a mobility ordinance that defined how e-scooters would operate in Green Bay.
