"Drivers are reminded that motorcycles have the same rights on the road as cars and trucks; to be aware of motorcycles moving into blind spots when changing lanes, merging, and especially at intersections"
If you are a rider and depending on any of the above, my condolences. Better to assume that you are invisible, no one sees you, ever. Even if someone does appear to acknowledge you in some way, proceed with the greatest of caution.
Alcohol is a factor in more motorcyle fatalities than it is in automobiles. Don't drink and ride.
18-24 year olds on sportbikes and without a motorcycle endorsement on their license are another major category. The little bit of effort required to get the endorsement is surprisingly effective in producing safer riders.
Approached correctly, motorcycles and scooters are great transportation, recreation and the missing link in the boring bicycles versus cars, one or the other, equation. www.ridetowork.org

What did you find out about the batteries? Defective batteries, too much current draw from their devices and/or solar cell inadequate to the draw?

Most of this stuff was probably inadvertently/accidentally "lost" overboard. Most people today are quite conscious, unlike in the 60s oil boom when the water was literally seen by many as a convenient trash receptacle. Everybody's consciousness has improved in this respect.
For the flotopia people, the harbor is heavily regulated, Harbor users work closely with authorities to make all of this happen. As Dirty Harry pointed out, life does have its limitations. Learn to work together with authorities to achieve common goals. You can't beat them so join them. You will achieve more happiness in life.

It's the only place where a license is not required or one of a few places? By what quirk is a license not required?

Many people can ride a bicycle but few do for regular transportation because they are impractical. To get people out of cars get them onto scooters or reasonably sized motorcycles. As any seasoned rider will tell you motorcycles are much safer than bicycles in traffic.

Ditto what Den said, including the long time in the saddle. He's got it right.
In their defense, Cops do have many job related distractions beyond those of a normal rider. Additionally, they ride very large, relatively unwieldy bikes. Leave yourselves some wiggle room buddies.

There is no option for the city to halt growth/density as they must operate under state mandate which forces ever increasing population density without regard for the local environment.
Better to address Das on these issues as the control rests with the state legislature not the City Planners. City Planners are in the unenviable position of trying to keep all parties happy.
The plan was initiated in 1969. Time to revise it in light of realistic expectations concerning survivability/sustainability.
It is well past time for Real Estate Developers to take a back seat.

Comparisons between flotopia and this cleanup project are senseless drivel.
The harbor, which looks pretty clean now from the surface, was once filled with oil production activity. No one had yet heard of "the environment". Turds floating about on the surface.
"Harboring" an attitude towards individuals who have found some measure of financial success is certain to derail you from the same.
"College kids having fun" You are advantaged to be attending college. Man up, don't blow it kiddies. Time is fleeting.
