Motor-Driven Scooters, Skateboards and Cycles
Sent: December 17, 2019
The Village has been seriously considering restricting the use of Motor-Driven Scooters, Skateboards and Cycles. Some of these models can travel in excess of 30 MPH and there are no State laws which prohibit or even limit the use of these devices. The Village is looking at restricting their use on any public property to promote safety. Some the safety issues currently under consideration include: prohibiting use without a driver's license, requiring lighting at night, requiring a brake, adherence to traffic laws and restrictions on speed, to name a few.
The Village wanted to advise the community that this issue was being explored and will be discussed again at a future Public Safety Committee Meeting within the next few months. If you would like to provide feedback in advance of any meetings, you can do so my emailing Chief Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org and your comments will be shared with the Public Safety Committee.
