(KNX 1070) -- They may be popular, but West Hollywood is taking a stand against motorized scooters. The City Council has just approved a ban on the scooters from companies like Lime and Bird. 

West Hollywood Mayor John Duran tells KNX, the problem is, people aren't riding them safely, and the scooters are being left all over sidewalks and streets.

Officials at Bird issued a statement saying they regretted the City of West Hollywood's decision.
