Whether they frustrate you or help you get to work, the city of Atlanta wants to know what you think about e-scooters.

The Department of City Planning released a five-minute online survey Thursday asking people every thing from why they use a scooter (if they use them at all), how they feel about scooter rider behavior, and what changes need to be made to make the devices successful in Atlanta.

The survey is part of the city’s efforts to rewrite scooter legislation and better enforce the laws.

"In the past few months, we learned a lot about how to regulate and manage e-scooters," the city said. "Now, we are looking to make some changes to our program."

Atlanta began regulating e-scooters in January, six months after the first set of scooters launched in the city. Since then, there have been four scooter-related deaths.

The city has considered rewriting the scooter legislation so that it can limit the number of permits issued to scooter companies.

The city also plans to hold a work session and draft updated legislation in December.

The survey can be accessed here through Dec. 8.
