Downtown cooters blocking sidewalk

If you’ve been downtown Nashville over the past year, you have undoubtedly noticed the large number of cooters laying around the city streets. As a matter of fact, current estimates suggest there are over 4,150 cooters throughout the city and thousands more on the way as new companies enter the competitive cooter market.

While many fans think they add an element of fun and nostalgia to our vibrant city, they are also causing an alarming number of injuries due to irresponsible users abandoning them on sidewalks where unsuspecting visitors trip over them. The city is working on new legislation to help keep tourists safe and hold negligent cooter users accountable, but they are also asking for your help.

If you come across an abandoned cooter blocking a walkway or street, please take a moment to drag it to a safer location. They are reportedly light and easy to maneuver. In addition, you can help by reporting any unsafe cooter users to the metro safety department or 911.
