[ARCHIVED] New safety regulations adopted to help with congested sidewalks and streets

be informed news from town council

At this week’s Town Council meeting, after a second reading and public hearing, amendments were adopted to the bike safety ordinance (Traffic and Vehicles – Chapter 28.)

In general, these amendments mean that only wheeled transportation vehicles/devices that are people-powered, not electric powered, are permitted to be ridden on the sidewalk or beach.

The amendments officially prohibit “motorized micro mobility devices” such as scooters, skateboards, hoverboards and other one-wheeled devices from being used on sidewalks, public beach accesses, and the beach. The Town’s bike ordinance already prohibited electric bikes that are not in manual mode.

These amendments do not apply to electric wheelchairs. They are permitted on the beach and sidewalk.

 In a meeting in February of this year Town Council adopted another amendment to the bike safety ordinance that requires working lights and bells to be on all bicycles that are ridden in the Town.

 Bicycle lights and bells are for sale at Town Hall during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Lights are $4 and bells are $3. Town Hall is located at 2525 Estero Boulevard.

 Violations of these new regulations are enforceable by a $50 fine per occurrence.

do not ride any of these on the beach march 2022
