Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C., attended an e-scooter safety demonstration on Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoon, hosted by the Micromobility Coalition. Holmes Norton is an advocate of allowing e-scooters on the Capitol campus.

“Let’s bring the Congress into the 21st century,” she said Wednesday.

“My ride sort of reminded me of the first time I, as a kid, got on a bicycle,” said Holmes Norton, who rode an e-scooter for the first time at the event. “Very wobbly.”

Davis, however, is a well-known scooter master, so he challenged a Lime employee to a drag race. Watch the video to see his tricks for winning a scooter race.
