After the shock announcement that Lime scooters would return to Dunedin streets on Thursday morning, the Tribune arrived at the Leith in time to see two strange men standing outside a white Toyota Hiace with blacked out windows. One by one, they threw their cargo of Limes over the fence and into the water, where they were quickly swept out into the ocean.
“Is that the last of them Jim?” the slightly more ursine of the pair asked the other.
“Yes, that’s all of them,” Jim replied, before getting back into the van and riding off into the sunrise.
At time of press, Lime was unavailable for comment. However the University Chaplaincy has announced plans for a small memorial service at a date and time yet to be confirmed.
