    Laws - View Law: Motorized scooters banned from Phoenix streets, sidewalks


    New regulation:

    Applies to any "motorized vehicle that is self-propelled by a motor or engine," whether it be gas or electric, and can reach the speed of up to 50 mph, are banned on any kind of public land - that includes parks and alleys - and can only be used on private property with the written consent of the owner… according to the ordinance

     

    Those who violate the rules will be subject to a traffic citation, just as drivers who speed or fail to yield at a stoplight are. And parents whose children are cited are just as liable - even if they didn't know their kids were using the skateboards in an inappropriate manner, or place.

     

     

    See also: MOTORIZED SKATEBOARDS for more information about motorized skateboards.

    this law is really lame. kids need a way to get around. if their parents dont mind it then it shouldn't be banned.

    ok, so banning scooters because people get hurt. does that mean we should ban kids from playing sports, or just going out side and climing a tree? they get hurt that way also. so your comment about getting hurt make no sense at all.

    in the last paragraph it says that the parents are held liable for kids skateboarding in a unapporite way? becuse i have been taken home meny times by the cops for skateing in privite property but they never brought up my parents? so is this law just under inforced?
