I recently moved to a smaller city in eastern Taiwan and outside my apartment building are stacks and stacks of o-bikes. I started grabbing them and using them to bip to PX mart and back instead of driving (I’m saving the planet). This old man claims he owns all of the o-bikes , but said it was okay that I ride them, up until yesterday when I saw him kicking the shit out of a stray dog and I got up in his face and embarrassed him in front of his old man crew.
The dude can’t own the obikes right? They are just abandoned, broken bikes that he’s stealing/collecting for whatever reason. I’m not going to stop fighting with this dude, but i will stop using his bikes if it is in fact against the law.
What’s the deal with abandoned obikes now? Who legally owns them? Can anyone use them?
