Motor-Driven Scooters, Skateboards and Cycles
Sent: March 9, 2020
The Village is considering restrictions on the use of Motor-Driven Scooters, Skateboards and Cycles. These low-speed electric vehicles are gaining popularity as an alternative to short-distance driving, and to traditional bicycles and scooters.
To encourage the safe use of Motor-Driven Scooters, Skateboards and Cycles in our community, the Village is considering the following restrictions:
· Prohibiting use without a driver’s license
· Requiring lighting at night
· Requiring a brake
· Adherence to traffic laws
· Restrictions on speed
· Carrying articles preventing the rider from keeping at least one hand on the handlebars
· Prohibiting more riders than what the device is designed for
· Toys capable of traveling no more than 10 MPH, operated under adult supervision
· Motorized wheelchairs and scooters designed for those with mobility difficulties
If you would like to provide feedback for the Public Safety Committee, you can do so my emailing Chief Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org and your comments will be shared with the Public Safety Committee. The Public Safety Committee will be discussing this issue on March 16, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. in the Village Hall Board room.
