CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte City Council adopted new rules for electric scooters at a meeting Monday evening.
The city explored dynamic pricing, which means riders could be charged more than the current fee of $1 to unlock a scooter.
- Cap speed limits at 15 miles per hour
- Ban two people from riding one scooter
- Prohibit scooters from riding on sidewalks on busy streets in uptown such as College, Stonewall, Seventh and Church Streets.
City council members have been searching for a way to regulate scooter safety since they became popular last spring.
The city was considering banning scooters on streets with a speed limit above 35 mph, but council members opted to not include it in their policy Monday night.
