For the past 10 months, electric scooter riders have been allowed to flout the city of Atlanta’s code by riding on sidewalks and in other areas designated for pedestrians.

But that leniency ended this week.


Atlanta Police officers have begun warning people who use scooters to get around town that they risk being fined if they aren’t riding in the street with traffic, according to a report by Channel 2 Action News


“If you’re using anything with wheels to get around Midtown or downtown Atlanta, we ask that you be in the street following the rules of the road and staying with the flow of traffic,” Atlanta police Maj. Darin Schierbaum told Channel 2.

Sources familiar with the matter say The Big Man is now working on numbers restrictions.

I wonder how many people will be killed as a result of this law.

“If you’re using anything with wheels to get around Midtown or downtown Atlanta…”

Wheelchairs and four wheel scooters used by the disabled in Atlanta streets will be a real treat. Will APD be adding blue lights to their Segways that they’ll now operate in the streets?
