Where are people allowed to use and park motorized scooters?
Under state law, motorized scooters may NOT be ridden on sidewalks. They may be ridden on city streets. If the city street has a posted speed limit greater than 25 mph, they must be ridden in a bike lane. Scooters may currently be parked on sidewalks, so long as they do not block driveways, building entrances, curb ramps, or utilities such as fire hydrants.
