In the past few years, the use of e-bikes, e-scooters, battery-powered mopeds and other two- or three-wheeled vehicles has grown ... Even more disturbing, said Pace University criminologist and former NYPD lieutenant Darrin Porcher, PhD, is that more serious crimes involving perpetrators on e-scooters and e-bikes are becoming more frequent. Those crimes, include a shooting in Sunset Park, Brooklyn last week by an e-scooter driver who hit multiple unoccupied cars, are becoming higher in number. A man on an e-scooter of some kind also allegedly attacked and sexually assaulted women last month in Fort Tryon Park in Upper Manhattan. Porcher called for greater NYPD action. “Carve out an additional unit that can have the sole focus of looking at these people that are on these e-bikes, scooters and dirt bikes,” he said.

"Some trees are going to have these very bright colors but very short time compared to normal because of the drought, whereas other trees are going to cut the leaf off earlier before it even changes colors.
