DENVER -- The battle between the city of Denver and lime green scooters has taken another turn.
Denver Public Works has started confiscating the scooters that are parked illegally across the city.
On Friday, Lime dropped off 200 of the shared scooters in a few neighborhoods. Users open an app on smartphones to unlock them, then they are dropped off anywhere in the city.
They've been a huge hit, but not with city officials.
Denver Public Works said it was never notified by the company about the plans and officials are concerned with where people are riding and parking them.
Denver Public Works said officials have started to remove scooters that are blocking sidewalks and other public spaces.
