About Bird Graveyard

Described by Vice in 2018 as “an entire Instagram account devoted to destroying rideshare scooters,” this channel has risen to prominence documenting a traffic solution gone wrong. Abandoned dockless scooters have become increasingly strewn about on city streets, fostering tripping hazards and backlash by residents. Taking to social in activist solidarity, Bird Graveyard and their 70K+ followers celebrate the decommission and death of the Bird and Lime scooters. Bird Graveyard’s social stirrings and national media coverage are helping to raise awareness for the growing inner-city issue, advocating for non-clutter, non-imposing traffic solutions.
