NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Officials with Lime Scooters are making changes after public criticism from Nashville Mayor David Briley.

A pop-up message will now appear in the Lime app discouraging people from riding under the influence.

They are also introducing foot patrol teams to make sure scooters are placed in the scooter corals around town.

The company said it will be working to keep teens under the age of 18 off their scooters, and offering more classes to teach people how to scoot safely.

The first class is Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at Carter-Lawrence Elementary.
